The Trinity Hymnal Baptist Edition

“The Baptist Edition of Trinity Hymnal is the result of a collaboration between a number of Reformed Baptist churches and Great Commission Publications during 1994 and 1995. The project reflects a desire to make the hymnal available with modest revisions to accommodate it for use by Baptist congregations and individuals.”  (from Preface to the Baptist Edition)

The Baptist Edition (first published in 1996) is identical to the original blue Trinity Hymnal (first published in 1961) with the following exceptions:

  • The paedo (infant)-baptist hymn #’s 117 and 350-55 have been replaced with appropriate hymns for Baptists.
  • The tunes of hymn #’s 281 and 279 have been replaced with SINE NOMINE and FINLANDIA, respectively.
  • Hymn #’s 731 & 732 (a slightly edited version of “And Can It Be That I Should Gain” and “I Asked the Lord That I Might Grow (Newton)) have been added.
  • The Psalter Selections (pp. 606-665) and the catechism or forms (depending on the edition you look at) have been replaced by a musical Psalter Supplement which contains 42 musical Psalter selections (#’s 733-774). With the addition of this Psalter Supplement, a significant portion of all 150 Psalms is now represented.
  • The Westminster Confession of Faith has been replaced by The London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689.
  • The Table of Contents and Indexes have been revised to reflect the above changes.
  • The subtitle “Baptist Edition” has been added on the front book cover and spine, and on the title page.
