Index of The Korean-English United Methodist Hymnal Contents

Come, Let Us Worship (The Korean-English United Methodist Hymnal, 2001) was approved by the 2000 General Conference of The United Methodist Church as an official denominational hymnal. The other two official hymnals of our church are The United Methodist Hymnal (1989) and Mil Voces Para Celebrar (1996). The index which follows includes all the titles of Come, Let Us Worship and indicates whether they are duplicated in the 1989 Hymnal, in The Faith We Sing, or are readily available in other current English-language hymnals and song collections. It also indicates which titles are original Korean-language songs that have been translated into English for this hymnal.

The statistical analysis of this cross-referencing shows that of the 342 musical titles in Come, Let Us Worship:

  • 233 (68%) are in The United Methodist Hymnal (1989)
  • 18 (5%) are in The Faith We Sing
  • 76 (22%) are other original English language hymns readily available in other hymnals and songbooks. Many of these are old gospel songs.

Thus:

  • 309 (90%) are non-Korean hymns and songs already available in other sources
  • 233 (68%) are already in The United Methodist Hymnal or The Faith We Sing
  • 33 (less than 10%) are originally Korean titles that have been included with English translations available for the first time in a UM hymnal.

These statistics are consistent with the committee's original intent for this new hymnal as stated in the Preface (p. vi):

  1. The committee was to create a collection for use by the average worshiper in a Korean church
  2. The hymnal was to help bridge the differences between first- and second-generation Korean-Americans in The United Methodist Church
  3. The hymnal was to serve as a resource to strengthen and support the spiritual life of the current generation of Korean-Americans

The means the hymnal committee chose to do this was to make this new hymnal a primary worship resource for congregational song in which the vast majority of songs included (90%) are original English-language hymns and songs. It seeks to make available to Korean-American congregations many of the titles in The United Methodist Hymnal and The Faith We Sing already being sung by the English-speaking "majority" churches of our denomination. This new hymnal does not draw heavily upon original Korean hymns and songs for its contents. Thus, rather than being a major resource upon which the larger church can draw to experience worship and music within an Asian or Korean cultural ethos, this hymnal has been designed to make available in the Korean language a large portion of the English-speaking larger church's ethos and congregational song repertoire for use in Korean-speaking congregations.
