Historic Hymnals

HSL is excited to publish online historic hymnals from different eras of Unitarian, Universalist, and liberal religious history. We currently feature two hymnals from the late nineteenth century: Unity Festivals, published by the Western Unitarian Sunday School Society, and Orders of Service for Public Worship, as well as two from the mid-twentieth century, We Sing of Life and We Speak of Life.
