I am very happy to tell you about a great new resource coming soon from Concordia Publishing House. It’s titled My First Hymnal. Now children have a hymnal all their own . . . a treasured book as they grow and learn in faith. Specially designed for children up to age ten. It offers a good basic core group of solid, faithful hymns, with rich devotional resources throughout, and beautifully unique illustrations. You are going to love it. Here’s another one of my fabulously high-quality iPod videos for your viewing pleasure:

    Yay!! Awesome. This is what I have been waiting for. It’s like Christmas in September.

    It might be too early to know, but will this hymnal have music for the hymns included, or just the words of the hymns? I’m not sure when children begin to learn music, so perhaps including such information would not be necessary for children below the age of 10. But I thought I would ask.

      For sure the melody line, not sure if it will have full four-part music.

    Please have the four-part settings. I will almost certainly get this hymnal for my grandchildren; I will be teaching them the hymns and accompanying them on our piano or our organ.

      Nope, sorry, not enough space for that, sorry. Goal is to get them to learn hymns, the melody line is there.

    Will this be out before Christmas?

    Will (and if so how will) this connect to/with LSB? Will it lead children to LSB? I grew up in an age/time when TLH was the classroom hymnal/songbook from grade 1 on. Pastor Marks and I are working to get LSB into the classrooms and chapel setting of our congregation’s parochial school on the premise that it is for all ages and will help to further unite the church’s school with the school’s church, preparing the students for what happens in the worship setting of the church. Will this item hinder or help our efforts?

    Thanks much for your quick response. It seems to be a good item. I eagerly look forward to seeing the finished product live and in person. God continue to bless the great efforts you and others are doing at CPH!

    Please contain actual written musical notation. Kids can start learning piano as early as Kindergarten. My children’s choir is grades 2 – 5 and they are learning how to read music! Some of them already do read music, as many of them have learned various instruments in their elementary schools.

    Does this have any liturgies in it as well Paul? I remember when I was a little boy I had a book published by A-F (we were ALC then) that was an introduction to the liturgy (from the SBH) called – “The Little Liturgy”. It had no hymns in it and no musical accompaniment, but it was awesome for teaching the liturgy to kids – giving them a book (that was not so heavy as a hymnal) to hold in their hands and participate in the liturgy – as well as side bars explaining what each part of the liturgy was about. I’ve already recommended that the folks working on the ReClaim hymnal consider producing a resource of that type when they get around to releasing their hymnal.

    Does it have all the “catechism” hymns in it?

    Will there eventually be a companion CD with all the hymns?

    I am thrilled. Melody line should suffice to keep things uncluttered and portable. Perhaps some chords.
