The Hymn Society of Korea(HSK) is a non-profit organization founded by the major representatives from denominations in Korea. The Hymn Society of Korea published the Unification Hymnal Book(ChanSongGa), TongIlChanSongGa. It is a unified Hymnal Book from the 3 different books: HapdongChanSongGa, GaPyounChanSongGa, and SaeChanSongGa.
The Korean Church has maintained the beautiful tradition of the united spirit. Every church in Korea has broken down the wall of barrier and confesses that all churches in Korea are One in Christ by using One Hymnal Book in their worship services. The Korean churches decided to use a standardized One Hymnal Book in 1980. And since 1980, they have continued the beautiful tradition until now by using the One Hymnal Book.
After publishing the Unification Hymnal Book, the Hymn Society of Korea had published 21s Century SaeChanSongGa, the New 21st Century Hymnal Book in 2006. For publishing it, Church music experts and scholars of Korean and English literature have researched for 10 years and revised it. Through that, they glorified God and contributed to the congregation’s song and worship services.
The Hymn Society of Korea is eager to help the revival of Korean churches to worship in spirit and to continue in mission. We encourage you to continually have an interest in and pray for the Hymn Society of Korea to be able to perform this mission as an important association of churches in Korea.
