Gadsby's Hymns

Gadsby's Hymns


This words-only hymnal was first published in 1814 by William Gadsby, a Gospel Standard Strict and Particular Baptist minister. Over the following century, it was expanded to include, in addition to the original selection of hymns by various authors, all of Gadsby's hymns; almost all of Joseph Hart's hymns; two supplements of hymns by various authors; and a small group of hymns for special occasions. In total, it contains 1146 hymns, most of both great Scriptural fidelity and considerable beauty, and the collection is still in general use among the Strict and Particular Baptists.

In addition to certain practical considerations, Gadsby said he made his collection "to have a selection of hymns in one book free from Arminianism, and sound in the faith, that the church might be edified and God glorified."

This application allows searching the full text of the hymns by phrase and keyword, as well as direct access by number and first line.

Hymns wonderful but scrolling problem This is a great app with lots of fantastic hymns. However, when I try to scroll, often my swiping motion selects a hymn and opens it even though I didn't mean to. Perhaps just a fault with my phone? Otherwise its a great app.
