Church Hymns:
Lyrics, Chords, & Sheet Music

Church hymns - lyrics, sheet music, guitar chords and tabs for your worship group or Sunday School class, all in one place!

I've just gotten started on music for this page, but eventually there will be arrangements for many old standards as well as hymns you may never have heard before!

Church hymns - lyrics for Amazing Grace, plus chords and piano music.  Several keys to choose from.

Amazing Grace lyrics & music

Check out the piano sheets in several keys.  

This is a very pretty arrangement, which uses more chords than are ordinarily found.

These hymns are free to download, print, and use for your worship group.

And Can It Be

The beloved, dramatic hymn by Charles Wesley and Thomas Campbell.

The words light a fire in the soul!

Hymn sheet music for piano

Can There Be a Place hymn sheet music with chords

A song about longing for a place with no sorrow, pain, or death... but with a promise at the end.

Christ Arose sheet music

Christ Arose sheet music

An "Easter" song, or more properly, a Resurrection Sunday song!  Old-fashioned, but with beautiful lyrics.

This link will take you off of "SingTheBibleStory" to my other website, "Music-for-Music-Teachers."

On that page you'll find this piano arrangement, which is fairly easy, and also an accompanying guitar arrangement with chords & tabs.

Hymn "Farther On," a gentle and beautiful song about what lies ahead for Christians.

Farther On Hymn 

An old-fashioned but still relevant hymn which speaks of the soul's desire for a "field of endless day."

It is a gentle and beautiful song about what lies ahead for Christians, and is a comforting hymn, suitable for funerals.

I believe this song comes from the Shape Note tradition.

How Firm a Foundation hymn

How Firm a Foundation hymn sheet music

This older hymn is one of my favorites, with its ringing truths and promises.

Here is an easy but satisfying piano arrangement that manages to be more elaborate than the standard hymnal arrangement.

With 3 piano arrangement keys, and 5 lead sheet keys.

Sheet music I Love You, Lord

I Love You, Lord

A pretty song long used in worship services.

A piano/vocal arrangement, plus guitar sheets.

A new piano arrangement of "I'll Fly Away", suitable for a high-energy performance, but pretty too.

I'll Fly Away chords, lyrics, & piano sheet music

This is an energetic and surprisingly pretty arrangement of this favorite old hymn.

Though it is commonly sung at funerals, it is fun enough to play at music festivals, too.

Vocal harmony setting for It Is Well With My Soul, church hymnal sheet music

It Is Well With My Soul church hymnal sheet music

A beautiful hymn, set to 4-part harmony, as well as piano arrangements and lead sheets.

This song is comforting to a heart that is distraught.

Very fitting for the funeral,  memorial service, or celebration of life, of a believer in Christ.

Jesus Loves Me piano sheet music

Jesus Loves Me

An old favorite.

One piano arrangement, and two lead sheets with guitar tabs.

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee - Beethoven's famous Ode to Joy melody, for church.

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

This is Beethoven's famous song "Ode to Joy," with hymn lyrics in English written in the 1800's.

Two challenging but lovely arrangements; you are looking at the hardest one!

Three keys: C, F, and G.

Just As I Am, hymn for church with a pretty new piano arrangement.

Just As I Am

This moving old hymn is beautiful despite being old-fashioned, and the words are timeless.

Now with a lovely piano arrangement, in three different keys.

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep piano music

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

This is really more of a Sunday School song than a hymn.

A simple melody for this simple night-time prayer... teach it to your own kids or students.

Should We Not Believe piano sheet music, a story-hymn about when the Good News of Christ came to medieval England.

The Parable of the Sparrow: Should We Not Believe? 

A song about a warrior culture that hears the Good News of Christ's battle and victory over death.

Though a legend has grown around the conversion of the Anglo-Saxons in the early Middle Ages, the origin of this story is factual.

Hymn music Softly and Tenderly

Softly and Tenderly Hymn

This is a beautiful old hymn, with comforting lyrics for the bereaved or those longing for heaven.

A duet arrangement, guitar tabs, and this piano version in the keys of F and G.

Sweet Hour of Prayer hymn

Sweet Hour of Prayer hymn music

This very simple arrangement of the old & beloved hymn is located over at my other website!

It was arranged for students, but is pretty enough for church.

What Wondrous Love

What Wondrous Love is This, for choir

This is a 4-part choral arrangement that will work for a mix of young students, but also will be loved by an adult choir.

A different melody than the commonly known tune, this is nevertheless beautiful and haunting.

When He Cometh Jewels hymn

When He Cometh

This song is also known as "Jewels."  It is over on my other website, Music-for-Music-Teachers!

The hymn writer speaks of God gathering gems for His kingdom, and in verse 3, turns to children and tells them that those who love their Redeemer (Jesus) are the precious jewels that God loves.

Hymn music When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Multiple arrangements of this beautiful hymn, which describes a believer in Jesus Christ gazing at the Cross, seeing the true meaning of Christ's death there.
