8/15/07 Nauvoo Hymnal (1841) txt file complete

Posted by Shule Shule
I've finished typing out the Nauvoo Hymnal.

Here's a link to the article.

This is one of the more valuable old text only hymnals (and one of the least-known).

Although this hymnal contains a very large amount of hymns from other similar hymnals, one might be surprised at some of the selections, seeing as they're not all generally thought of as hymns used by the LDS church in the distant past.  These include the following (among others):
Amazing Grace
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
Hail the Blest Morn (i.e. Brightest and Best)
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing (with all three verses instead of just the usual two included in later LDS hymnals).
