For Soldiers and Sailors

Excerpt from For Soldiers and Sailors: An Abridgment of the Book of Common Worship The 129th General Assembly of The Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, meeting at Dallas, Texas, in a solemn and impressive service held on Monday afternoon. May 21, 1917, placed the entire resources of the Church at the disposal of the Government in carrying on the present war. A National Service Commission was appointed and instructed to call upon any or all of the agencies and resources of the Church for their help in the present crisis. The Commission has undertaken a comprehensive work covering every phase of the national and international situation in which the Church of Jesus Christ may properly be engaged. One of its tasks is to follow, with its special interest, the sons of the Church who may have enlisted as soldiers and sailors. The Commission, therefore, has authorized, through the loyal cooperation of the Board of Publication and Sabbath School Work, the publication of this abridgment of the Book of Common Worship. It is hoped and believed that this already approved volume will find a worthy place in camp and field and on shipboard, in supplying definite spiritual needs on the part of enlisted men and in furnishing suitable material, including an appropriate form of worship, to those who are engaged in special religious work for the men. To the authorized Book of Common Worship the words of a few appropriate hymns have been added, as well as some additional prayers suitable for the soldier and the sailor. This book is sent forth with the prayer of the National Service Commission that its pages may be the means of guidance, strength, comfort, hope, and everlasting life to those who read them.
