Edifying Hymns: First Line Index

Similar to my Useful Hymns first line index, with links to each of the hymns in it wherever they appeared on my blog, here is your handy guide to the hymns I have numbered 202-313 on this blog and that will be numbered 223-335 in Edifying Hymns. Plus No. 14 in the blog numbering, which fell into a crack and didn't make it into UH. The title or purpose of each hymn follows the ellipses. Topics with an asterisk (*) indicate they were written to accompany an Advent or Lent midweek sermon series. Also, I've broken out several sub-groups of hymns that would be difficult to categorize otherwise.
