Lift Up Your Voice, 1924

By: Ardis E. Parshall - February 21, 2014

This is the cover of the hymnal published by Joseph Wilford Booth in Aleppo, Syria. Its 89 hymns are in the Turkish language, written in the Armenian alphabet. Some were local Christian hymns; others were Mormon favorites translated by Pres. Booth and other missionaries over the previous quarter century.

  1. As has been proved in this very column, translating hymns is challenging. I’m glad they had 89 hymns to sing.
