This collection of poetry, written by one of the most celebrated hymn writers in the USA, includes hymn texts, carols, and poems for all occasions throughout the liturgical year. Troeger displays an artful gift of language through beautiful and expressive texts. The book is organized by theme and includes practical and useful indexes on meter, scriptural references, and liturgical usage, intending to enrich the work of preachers, liturgists, church musicians, and composers.
