When Morning Gilds the Skies

As Christians we have an eternal hope, and it is the focus of many beautiful, touching hymns. The stories behind these hymns can be just as moving as the lyrics themselves. In this new gift book, four renowned Christians present inspirational thoughts and histories of 12 beloved hymns, exploring the biblical framework of each and suggesting how those truths can be applied to our daily lives.

This beautifully produced book comes with a musical CD of all 12 hymns being performed-some in simple fashion by the authors, and other complemented by full orchestra and choir. These hymns are scheduled in the US History I guide to be listened to as part of their Bible time.

This set of hymns focuses upon the glory of heaven and on the eternal hope that we have in the Lord, making it a natural complement to the study of the New Testament scheduled within the US History I guide. What better way to glimpse the wonder of Christ than to sing about his majesty and look forward with joy to being with Him one day in heaven! We pray that the poignant words of these hymns and the corresponding collection of writings will bring hymn study to our students in a way that will place a longing and a desire for our Lord and for heaven in their hearts!
