In Australia, a young woman struggling with depression wrote ?'Shout to the Lord - ? and nervously sang it for the music pastor of her church. You?'ll discover the background on the composers of 600 of your favorite hymns and praise songs, the stories and verses that inspired the lyrics, scriptural references for devotional consideration, and a sampling of the lyrics.
