Reverend Knapp's Bible Songs of Salvation & Victory
Songs Sung by the Holy Rollers
No Holy Roller gathering was complete
without singing. The hymnbook of choice for Franz Edmund
Creffield and his flock? The Reverend Martin Wells Knapp's Bible Songs of Salvation and Victory published in
1902 "for God's people of every land: suitable for revivals,
the Church, Sunday-schools and the home."
Chapters in Holy Rollers: Murder and
Madness in Oregon's Love Cult start and end with
lines from some of these hymns, and many readers have
written asking for complete lyrics and music. And here we
thought every household had a well thumbed copy. For
those without one, enjoy.
