Welcome quote


"These hymns have brought cheer in the day of trial; comfort in the time of bereavement; encouragement to live a life of greater devotion to Christ; rebuke to our coldness and oft backslidings; stimulus to enter and continue in sacrificial service for our blessed Lord and Master; and inspiration and guidance in our adoring worship and praise to the Father, through the Son, and in the power of the Holy Spirit!"
- Alfred Gibbs (from 'Hymns: Their Use and Abuse')

Note: The names for tunes indicated are not their formal designations.

Terms Used

With the Malaysian language (Bahasa Malaysia) increasingly adopting numerous English words into its vocabulary, it is deemed necessary and helpful to introduce appropriate terms that will convey the truth contained in hymns succinctly and accommodate the fewer syllables of English language hymns.

The list will be added to as the work progresses.

God - Tuhan

Lord - Lord (suggested introduction into the Malaysian language)

Lord Jesus Christ - Lord Jesus Christ/ Lord Jesus Kristus

Lamb of God - (Anak) Domba Tuhan

children of God - anak-anak Tuhan

Son of Man - Anak Manusia

Man of Sorrows - Manusia Sengsara

faith - iman

Word of God - Firman Tuhan
