From The Cover

Throughout the world, hymns have been an integral part of Christian worship for many centuries. As far back as the end of the 4th Century, Augustine had defined what a hymn should be - "A hymn is a song containing praise of God. If you praise God, but without a song, you do not have a hymn. If you praise anything which does not pertain to the glory of God, even if you sing it, you do not have a hymn. Hence, a hymn contains these three elements - song and praise of God".
