[Church of Bangladesh] On 8 July 2013 the Church of Bangladesh's Hymn Book's 6th Edition was launched by the Moderator of Church of Bangladesh and the Deputy Moderator of Church of Bangladesh during the Clergy Retreat, which held at Khulna. All the Clergy of Church of Bangladesh and their wives were present at the ceremony.
In this new edition 35 new Hymns were added so that now the book contains a total of 664 Hymns (602 Hymns in Bangla, 13 in English, 29 in Achik (Garo), and 20 Hymns in Santali language).
In a speech Bishop Paul Sarker said that hymns are an important part of our worship and devotion. Hymns work to praise and connect us with God. He stressed the proper singing of hymns as otherwise they do not integrate us with the purpose.
