The Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal is the official hymnal of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and is widely used by English-speaking Adventist congregations. It consists of words and music to 695 hymns including traditional favorites from the earlier Church Hymnal that it replaced, American folk hymns, modern gospel songs, compositions by Adventists, contemporary hymns, and 224 congregational responsive Scripture readings.

Published in 1985 by Review and Herald Publishing Association, the hymnal has been through multiple printings and is available in various binding colors.

History[edit]

Although Adventist hymnals seem to have a lifetime of about it 25 years, by the early 1980s the existing hymnal had been in service since 1941. The General Conference Music Committee created a diverse 19-member Church Hymnal Committee chaired by C.L. Brooks with Wayne Hooper as secretary.[1] As part of the process more than 3000 Adventist ministers were asked to rate the hymns of the then existing Church Hymnal. Those that were commonly used were retained. Songs that were added to the new hymnal include those of a more diverse and contemporary nature. In 1990 Susan La Rosa Maehre published the complete Adventist Hymnal with organ and piano. "Hymns Alive" is the complete Hymnal available on 33 CD's from PAVE Records.[2] It is recorded with the organ on the right channel and piano on the left.
