We believe that our friends and the great public will be better pleased with Victorious Service Songs than any other book we have published. Twenty years of association in writing, selecting and publishing gospel songs, combined with the knowledge acquired by observation in conducting the music of the largest congregations and choruses ever assembled for Christian worship, has given us a wealth of experience, the result of which we are passing on to you in this volume. From the beginning of our song ministry our ambition has been to raise the standard of gospel hymns and songs. We realized that this could not be brought about suddenly, but must be accomplished through a steady and natural growth. While fully appreciating the value of many of the old standard hymns (which appear in the hymn section in the larger type), we are firmly convinced that the tuneful, melodious gospel song must not be lost if we are to attract and retain the interest of young people in the service of song -- that vital factor of importance to the present and future activities of the church. With a reasonable number of new songs, together with many of the popular modern favorites, we have herein included a large number of the most famous hymns and tunes of the church -- a combination of both new and old songs that will admirably serve each and every department of the church work and worship. - Preface
