ZION’S PRAISES

Produced by the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 1903, this hymnal of 232 hymns was designed for Church school groups. It became a supplemental hymnal in many RLDS Churches.

The introduction says, “Zion’s Praises is sent out with the hope that it will meet a hearty welcome from all lovers of the beautiful in music and song.... With a desire to help the song service of the Sabbath-schools everywhere, interest the young, gladden the hearts of the elderly, and honor in grateful praise God, to whom all honor and exaltation is fully due, the work is submitted and dedicated to Zion’s hopeful children.”
