In 1935 it was time for a new edition of 210 hymns.
[Fn 94: Many of these were written by Mr (later Rev.) Simon Röstin of the SMBV; cf. Svensson 1961, 102]

It included the same eleven versicles [as the 1925 edition].
The inclusion showed that the use of the Psalms for responsive reading and chanting continued to be a feature fo evangelical devotional life.
The hymnbook was in itself an instance of the spirit of co-operation and fellowship that characterized the two missionary groups irrespective of any difference at the leadership level in Sweden.
