"'The Century Hymnal Sampler' provides a glimpse of a splendid new hymnal due for publication in the spring of 1995. This sample includes a 'sampling' of the 650 hymns included in the hymnal. It offers a preview of a new Psalter. It illustrates the scope of the hymnal's resources for Christian worship. It suggests a format expressing the fullness and integrity of the Christian faith in conjunction with logical and easy use. This sampler invites the church to immerse itself in the music, the texts, the prayers, the readings and the psalms as the United Church Board for Homeland Ministries completes this project". -- Intro.
