By Rob Birks – May 1, 2013
This work is meant to introduce the poetry of the first Poet General, Albert Orsborn (1886-1967), to a new audience and to reintroduce his work to dyed-in-the-(tropical)-wool Salvationists. As the subtitle states, these are not new songs. However, the lyrics are jam-packed with new life, which may be missed during corporate worship. Reexamined through Scripture and experience, Rob Birks intends through an examination of these sacred songs to renew the spiritual fervor of believers, and point seekers to their Savior.
