Sankey’s Favorite Hymns and Songs
A Selection and Their Stories
Ira D Sankey
In 1906 Ira D. Sankey wrote the story of his life, and listed many of his favorite hymns and songs. This book contains a selection of sixty from Sankey’s favorites, together with his stories of how they came to be written and how they were used to bless many people. We hope that our selection, which contains old favorites like Abide with Me and some little known hymns and songs, like the delightful I Hear the Saviour Say, will bring a blessing to many, and perhaps introduce congregations and worship bands to new experiences in worship today. And if the service leader repeats some of the associated stories recorded here by Sankey, there may well be an additional blessing!
