IMPORTANT NOTES TO READERS:
* Be sure to number your file names with a total of three digits, since there are more than 99 sections. This means that many sections will need one or more leading zero in the file name. For example, hymn 1 should be numbered 001.
* We will treat this book as a book of poetry, not a book of music. Some of these hymns will be familiar to you, and you will feel the urge to sing them. Resist the urge. I do not intend to check the copyright status of 184 melodies. If you sing your submission, it will not be accepted.
