New Hymn Lyrics

   “I will sing a new song to you, O God.”  Ps. 149:9 

   ​
The Format:   1. Words Only: As I am presently not equipped to set my hymns to music,  most appear in text form only, as one might find a standard poem.   2. Suggested tunes: However, hymn tunes such as those found in many current church hymnals, are suggested for each text.  Many such non-copyrighted (“public domain”) tunes can also be found online as MIDI files, and can be accessed and played while reading texts on this site.

​​​​​​​​​ Behold, The Light Has Dawned
Glad Music Points Our Souls To Christ
We Know It Well, That Strong Desire
Come, Gather To Hear What The Spirit Will Say
All People Shall See It
O Spirit Come, Renew Your Church
Where God and People Meet
To Those Without The Friendly Light
Looking Inward, Reaching Outward
The Faith To Light The Nations
The Call Of Jesus
At Peace With All Creation
The Death of Jesus
God’s Delight
Lift Praise To God The Living One
The Day Of Grace And Hope Has Come
A Measure Of Splendor
In Communion’s Holy Supper
Prayer After Receiving
The Lord’s Prayer
The Simplest Of Presents
Though Forms Of Worship Differ
With Grateful Hearts
In The Fresh, Light Breeze Of Springtime
We Look With Sadness on the Earth
In The Midst of Human Suffering
Will We Welcome The Holy Stranger
We Know What Thomas Must Have Thought
No Eye Has Seen
In Communion’s Holy Supper
When Hope Itself Seems Nearly Gone
As The Disciples Saw Your Face
Living Church, Display God’s Grace
Extravagance Instead
Extravagance Instead
Far Beyond Our Understanding
God Will Be With Us
Good News of Salvation
Like Grace That Runs Ahead of Us
When Love Brings Laughter
Have Mercy On Us Lord
Holy Spirit, Wind and Flame
Holy Spirit, Wind and Flame (score pdf.)
I Do Not Know Him
Join The Joyful Dance of Easter
Not Just For Us
O The Joy Of Easter Morning
On That Holy Night of Wonder
O That Holy Night of Wonder
One Week in Spring
Practice The Presence of God
The Faith That Once Led Abraham
The Grace of God
The Silent Day
The Time Between
The World’s True Light Is Christ
When Brutal Forces Crush Out Love
When We Give Our Gifts At Christmas
Your Love Is New Each Morning Lord
Welcome the Stranger
May We Tend the Soul You Gave Us
​By Sacred Song and Wine and Bread
The Kindly Keeper
See Our Savior, Crucified
If God Could Make Our Savior Rise
Come!  Run You Christians, See the Empty Tomb!
Come, Meet Our Living Lord
As One, Beneath The Cross
Called to Speak the Words of Healing
​Why Take Time To Worship
Will We Welcome The Holy Stranger
With Grateful Hearts
