For many worshipers, hymn singing is a mere routine in the church service, accepted but not necessarily enjoyed. For others, the pleasure of making a joyful noise to God often obscures the words that are being sung, and thereby this essential part of worship loses its full significance.
The Companion to the Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal seeks to remedy these two defects by calling attention in particular to the words of the hymns so that the hymns will be much more appreciated and their spiritual effect heightened. Comments, where appropriate, have also been made on the tunes, so that both authors and composers will come to life, so to speak, In this way, attention will be focused on the hymn-singing part of divine service.
The Companion may also serve as a resource for ministers and lay persons to illustrate their sermons and to enable them to make a wise choice of hymns.
