Hymnal: Hymns of Grace.
There are a ton of benefits to owning and being familiar with a good hymnal. Hymnals are full of songs that make it easy to commit sound doctrine and theology to memory, they are usually arranged topically for easy reference, and they are typically full of scripture references within songs and scripture readings to go along with songs. Hymns of Grace includes classics from Luther and Watts up to modern greats from people like Bob Kauflin and Stuart Townend.

Song: Rock of Ages by Augustus Toplady. (#209 in Hymns of Grace)
"Finally, we note that the people of God need protection not only from foes, both human and demonic, but also from the Lord Himself. Born into this world as sons and daughters of Adam, we deserve the righteous wrath of the one, true, holy God (Rom. 5:12–21). The only way to escape this wrath is to find shelter in the only one who can save us from God, namely, God Himself (1 Thess. 1:9–10). We find this protection in Jesus Christ alone, the incarnate Son of God, who bore His Father’s wrath on behalf of His people, that they might enjoy the benefit of eternal life. Like the famous hymn writer Augustus Toplady, we all must confess to Him: “Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in thee.” - Tabletalk Magazine, Ligonier Ministries
