Index of Tunes for Lyrics

​Note: Many of us are less familiar with the proper name of a tune, than we are with the name of the hymn text with which we learned and sang that tune. I hope this index will be of help in more quickly identifying suggested tunes in my hymn collection Extravagance Instead. Especially, I am thinking of busy pastors or musicians picking hymns for next Sunday’s worship service before the bulletin deadline. 
Although this list refers only to pages in The United Methodist Hymnal, the names of the more common texts likely to use that tune, may be recognizable to many readers.      Fred

Title
Lift Praise To The Father    A Doxology               
The Kindly Keeper
    

First Line
A measure of splendor
All people shall see it
Good friends among God's Children
As the disciples saw your face
At peace with all creation
Behold, the light has dawned
Born of water, born of Spirit
When childhood faith begins to grow
Called to speak the words of healing,
Christ has risen, let us sing
Christ has risen, let us sing
Come, Meet Our Living Lord
Come Run You Christians,See the Empty
Come, Gather to Hear What The Spirit
She broke the jar and poured it..
She Broke the Jar and Poured it
​Far beyond our under-standing
Gideon, great man of valor
Give us a well of tears
Glad music points our souls to…
God loves and accepts us
God loves and accepts us
Running ahead and climbing a
The Lord your God is with you
Good news of salvation thru Jesus..
Great God filled with power
Great God filled with power
The barriers of sin set walls …
Holy Spirit wind and flame, given
Holy Spirit wind and flame, given
“I do not know him” Peter said
"If God could make our Savior rise"
In communion’s holy …
In the fresh, light breeze of spring…
In the midst of human suffering
Jacob wrestled with the..
Join the joyful dance of Easter
Lift praise to God the living one
Lift praise to the Father, give thanks..
Like grace that runs ahead of us
Living church, display..
Looking inward, reaching…
May we tend the soul you gave us
No eye has seen, no ear has heard
Not just for us but for the world
Now may the God of peace …
O Spirit come renew your church
On that holy night of wonder
O the joy of Easter morning
On that holy night of wonder
One week in spring would save us all
Practice the presence of God
Lord, we thank you for this …
See our savior, crucified
Speaking from the lofty pulpit
Standing here as young …
The call of Jesus came to those..
The call to follow often comes
Look! In the garden tomb where death
The death of Jesus gives us life
The faith that once led Abraham
The faith to light the nations
The grace of God will save us
The kindly keeper welcomed them   
O God, our Heavenly Father
The reason for living is not wealth
The reason for living
The reason for living is not wealth
The silent day that sits between…
The simplest of presents, a Child on
The splendor of the thrilling
The time between is where we..
The world’s true light is Christ,
Though forms of worship …
To live out of joy, our faith
To Those Without the friendly…
We know it well, that strong …
We know what Thomas…
We look with sadness on the earth
Welcome the stranger into your land
When brutal forces crush out love
When hope itself seems nearly gone
When love brings laughter
When praise is silenced by our cares
When we give our gifts at Christmas
Where God and people meet
Why take the time to worship
To refugees who flee their homes
With grateful hearts we..
Your love is new each morning…
