RUF Hymnal
Corrections to the 1st Printed Edition
Updated 3.26.03

When putting together any publication, one tries their hardest to not make any mistakes. Being human, though, it is possible to miss a few things here and there. Thanks to the many owners of the RUF Hymnal's 1st Edition, we have been alerted to some points that need to be changed. Their contributions are much appreciated! If you have found something to be changed that is not mentioned here, please post it on the Indelible Grace Discussion Board and we will make the corrections available on this page.

Below are the details for each correction, as well as a link to download the proper page to print off and place in your copy of the Hymnal. Most corrections are merely cosmetic and do not affect the performance of the song, so it is quite possible to merely mark the proper spot in your Hymnal.

  • A Sinner's Cry
    Bar 2 - The & of 1 is a D, not an E
    Bars 2 & 6 - & of 3 = D, 4 = E, & of 4 D
    If any of this is confusing, just view the PDF for these measures.

    Bar 14 - The 2nd chord should be an A, not another D.

  • Father Of Mercies In Thy Word
    Bar 11 - The word "only" should have be hyphenated ("on-ly"), thus shifting the rest of the phrase one note over.
