Useful Hymns: First Line Index

Here is a list of the hymns in Useful Hymns, alphabetized by the first line of Stanza 1. Kind of like, you know, the "text index" of an ordinary hymnal, only after each first-line entry it names the author or source. The number at the end of each entry is the hymn number (as opposed to a page number). When there is a slash between two author or source names, the names identify original author-slash-translator. If my name (Fish) isn't anywhere to be seen, it probably means I just wrote an original tune for somebody else's hymn. Whew. This is complicated. In the book layout it is easier to read because instead of ellipses ("...") there are tab characters that space the information into columns, although the spaces are filled with dots.
