Cross Reference of Hymnals

You are here

We have two different Baptist Hymnals that I am trying to incorporate into our overhead projection system when called upon during the service. I have already completed the Red Baptist Hymnal 1991 and now would like to do the Blue Baptist Hymnal 2008. I know a lot of the songs in the Red Baptist Hymnal is also in the Blue one. Is there a way I can cross reference the two so I can copy and paste and only have to change the hymn number?



We have a hymnal compare feature. Will that work?  From either hymnal index, you should see "Compare texts in this hymnal" and "Compare tunes in this hymnal" on the right side under the Indexes box. It will show you a list of texts unique to BH2008 or a list unique to BH1991.
