Hymns To God™ began in 2008 as a personal project to search for old public domain hymns and to reproduce them in a usable form for others to use. It has been my desire to transcribe hymns that are not usually found in modern hymn books used by the churches of Christ today. All the hymns found on this site are believed to be in the public domain or carry the Creative Commons type 3 or type 4 copyright or has a conditional copyright that allows for free use under certain conditions. This allows for free reproduction and use. It is my desire that these hymns will be found of some value to others and used in worship.
Within this site you will find PDF, PPT, and KEY files of the completed hymns, the MUP Files from the program used to write them with, and the sound files so that you can learn the melody of the hymns.
I originally considered not including the Sound Files on this site. But after much thought I realized that there are a lot of people, such as myself, that cannot read music and pitch songs without some help.
In the New Testament, we are instructed to worship God by singing only, and not with instrumental music. Please understand that these sound files do not give consent to instrumental music in worship. Singing and making melody with our hearts is what God desires (Eph.5:19). I have often encouraged people to worship God with the only musical instrument created by God - our voices.
All the hymns found on this site are formatted for 6x9 paper. This is the size of many song books used today. These hymns can also be printed on letter size paper. You will also find some hymns formatted in letter size. These will continue to be added as time goes on.
You will also find many hymns that have been converted to overhead projection files. These are formatted as PDF, Powerpoint, and Keynote.
Mup Music Publisher
All the hymns on this site have been produced with the Mup Music Publisher by Arkkra. Mup uses a simple text file that the program uses to produce the hymn. I have found that Mup produces very good results with hymns. The code is easy and very intuitive. It comes with a very good manual and it is integrated into the Mup editor for easy reference.
And Finally. . .
And finally, I sincerely hope you enjoy what you find here and that it may be of some use to you as you worship God.
