Songs of Praise is a 1925 hymnal. Compiled by Percy Dearmer, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Martin Shaw, it was intended as a companion to the popular English Hymnal of 1911. Musically, it deliberately omitted several Victorian hymn tunes and substituted "modal" tunes by Shaw and Gustav Holst.

During the twentieth century it was widely used in schools in the UK.
