    Wow! Horrible lyrics, even despite it being 1944.

    song 51 Consecration: "take my silver and my gold, nothing Lord, would I withold."

    I do not know if the melodies are available. The records with songs that I have are from before and after this period.

    Thank you for that information.

    Yeah, we can listen to that part by MIDI.
    My friend (ex-JW) made that.
    http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~wa4k-ngtn/jwsongs/songs1984-02.html#1984-027

    The machine translation of that web page is here.

    For example, ...
    MIDI of No.7 "Blessed Are the People!" is here.
    http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~wa4k-ngtn/jwsongs/midi/song1948-007.mid

    This was No.57 "Jehovah's Happy People" in 1984 edition, and was deleted from the current song book.
    If you listen to that MIDI, you will understand that melodies differ from the recent music somewhat.

    possible

    Karl Klein about Knorr:

    "Brother Knorr was my favorite speaker. He once referred to me as his shadow, for I kept showing up where he gave talks. What is more, he was as fond of music as I was and reintroduced singing at our congregation meetings. He took a real interest in songbook publishing.—Ephesians 5:18-20" w10-1-1984p26

    Before this songbook there was no singing at the meetings for some time, since Rutherford had stopped it.
