Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us. – Martin Luther
Walther, Gerhardt, Luther, Wesley, and us. While we don’t claim to be on par with these greats, we have a goal to enhance and expand orthodox, liturgical, Lutheran hymnody. The many Lutheran hymnals out there have a number of fine hymns, but there are more — many more — that have been written by pastors, organists, and laymen alike.
On this site, we offer these hymns to you for any church or home use. Although the texts are available without cost, we ask that you respect our copyrights and that any reprints of our material contain the copyright notice that is posted with each text.
If you so desire, some hymn writers have a link for a free-will donation, but we must stress that it is free will!
