I thought I'd move this request to a new thread.

I found somewhere that 'Sister' Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944) wrote 175 hymns and songs. There's quite a biography of her here (click), and there are photographs of her Angelus Temple here (click). There is a collection of Aimee Semple McPherson ephemera at the Billy Graham archives at Wheaton College in Illinois.

You can listen to a public radio program about Sister Aimee here (click). There's a good collection of photos from her life in this YouTube video - the comments after the video are very interesting.

I have a copy of the 1957 edition of Foursquare Hymnal. The hymnal is dedicated to Sister Aimee, and I'm sure there are a few of her hymns there. I found one or two, but there is no songwriter index. An earlier Foursquare Hymnal is Foursquare Hymnal of Standard Songs of Evangelism. This page has an index of at least some of the songs written by Sister Aimee.

Oh, one more thing I have to point out because it's so interesting - a Website called www.childpreacher.com

McPherson founded the Foursquare Church in 1927. The denomination now claims 8 million members.

This video on prohibition is a gem. Is it real, or is it dubbed?
This three-part biography is excellent.
There is a very insightful look at Sister Aimee in this book review.

Facinating history (and no need for the scandalous details)

In a play "You, Neighbor God" - some of the scripting came from a radio-drama history montage, "The Parade Gone By" - burning in my ears this morning is a line in the play from Amy P to J. Edgar Hoover.

TELEGRAM MESSAGE :

Order your minions of Satan (STOP) to release this radio station (STOP) - Immediately (STOP)

She broadcast from "The Angelus Temple" - still standing.

Dear GUEST - While I could fullfill your request, a trip to the nearest 4-square with a "SAW=BUCK" in hand can procur YOU the material most immediately.....MORE IMPORTANTLY ....Why do you ask?

I have a hymnal, published by Aimee Semple McPherson Publishing Company in 1936, autographed by her. Trying to find information regarding this hymnal - titled "Foursquare Hymnal" with a subtitle of Standard Songs of Evangelism.

The hymnal has been in the family for a while, but I don't know the hymns anymore, and wondering if anyone is interested in it?

Hi, Adriel -
I'd suggest you get a copy of the Foursquare Hymnal. Copies are available at a reasonable price from used book sellers. I use www.bookfinder.com

The Wikipedia article on the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel is very interesting. The Foursquare Church Website is also very interesting, and it has special information about Aimee Semple McPherson available right now, and a great video.

There's a lot of video footage of Sister Aimee available on YouTube.

"What brought this commonplace and transparent mountebank to her present high estate...? The answer, it seems to me, is as plain as mud. For years she had been wandering about the West, first as a side-show barker, then as a faith healer, and finally as a cow-town evangelist. One day, inspired by God, she decided to try her fortune in Los Angeles. Instantly she was a roaring success. And why? For the plain reason that there were more morons collected in Los Angeles than in any other town on earth..., and she was the first to give it anything low enough for its taste and comprehension....

[It] must be manifest to any fair observer that there is very little merit in the case against her. What she is charged with, in essence, is perjury, and the chief specification is that ,when asked if she had been guilty of unchastity, she said no. I suggest that no self-respecting judge in the Maryland Free State, drunk or sober, would entertain such a charge against a woman, and that no Maryland grand jury would indict her. It is unheard of, indeed, in any civilized community for a woman to be tried for perjury uttered in defense of her honor. But in California,... the process of justice is full of unpleasant novelties....

...It will be a hard job, indeed, to find twelve men and true to send her to the hoosegow. Unless I err grievously, God is with her." -- H. L. Mencken (1926)

I'm interested in her "Old Violin" song (not sure "hymn" is quite right).

Subject: ADD: The Old Violin (Aimee Semple McPherson)
From: GUEST

"The Old Violin"
Words and Music By
Aimee Semple McPherson

In a quiet dusky corner, lay an old violin,
And its strings lay slack and tuneless,
And its heart lay mute within…
Came the Master to the corner,
And with face suffused with light,
He lifted it from its setting
Of sightless soundless night….

And I was that old violin,
Mine was the muted song,
His was the nail-pierced hand,
Whose touch was deft and strong…
I was that old violin,
And His was the skillful bow,
I was that old violin,
And I sing Him me heart's love song.

The He placed and strung the heart strings,
Of the old violin…
Over life's rack with care He stretched them,
As He turned love's tuning pin,
Then He laid it on His bosom,
And His dear face bent there o'er,
He tuned it and gave it utterance,
And caused its notes to soar…

In some tuneful sunlit corner
For this old violin,
And I pray the Lord will grant me,
Just a humble place to win,
Midst the orchestra of Heaven,
As His praise forever they play,
Surround that blest throne with music,
Throughout Love's fadeless day…

And I was that old violin,
Mine was the muted song,
His was the nail-pierced hand,
Whose touch was deft and strong…
I was that old violin,
And His was the skillful bow,
I was that old violin,
And I sing Him me heart's love song.
