Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things.
Let this be known throughout the earth.
At the turn of the last century, America was still raw from the Civil War and barreling toward the First World War. Believers gathered together at camp meetings and revivals, took their hats in their hands, and sang hymns about Jesus and the hope of the gospel. Join us for this 2-week study as we read the Scripture and stories behind ten beloved early American hymns.
The 8x10, spiral bound, 96-page, full-color Go Tell It on the Mountain: Stories of Early American Hymns study book offers 14 days (2 weeks) of Scripture readings.
This book includes:
- Full Scripture readings for every day—right there in the book
