“We will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the Lord.” —Isaiah 38:20
“Emma Smith assembled a collection of hymns which first appeared in this Kirtland hymnal in 1836. There were only 90 songs included in this thin little booklet. Many of them were hymns from Protestant faiths. Only the lyrics were written; no musical notes accompanied the texts. This humble little hymnal proved to be a great blessing to early members of the Church.” —Steven E. Snow
