brings together a collection of 174 hymns––contemporary, traditional, and hymns from around the world––congregational songs with which we unite in church services, as well as individual prayer, to worship and praise God.
TheChristian Science Hymnal: Hymns 430-603
is a hardback book with a soft gray cloth cover featuring a design that illustrates the silhouette of the dome and tower of The Original Mother Church and Extension in charcoal, with the title in metallic copper. The binding is distinctive, and yet harmonizes with the charcoal brown and metallic copper binding of the Christian Science Hymnal (1932). The new book will be the same width as the 1932, but will be ¾” taller.
Like the 1932Hymnal
, the hymns in this volume are arranged in alphabetical order according to their first lines. Because this hymnal incorporates most of the hymns from the 2008 Christian Science Hymnal Supplement: Hymns 430–462
, the hymn numbers in this volume begin with hymn 430.* The hymns feature an easy-to-read font. Some hymns originated in a language other than English. Where possible and practical, the original language is included alongside the English translation. Guitar chords are given where appropriate, and space permits. To ensure the ease of use by congregations, page turns are avoided by presenting longer hymns in a simplified version, showing the melody and words only. The complete hymn, including the accompaniment, can be found in the Full-Score Appendix. A full complement of indexes includes: listings of first lines and common titles; authors, composers, and sources; music names; metrical listings; copyright holders.

The attributes of joy, excellence, dignity, and “appropriate religious character” (The Manual of The Mother Church
