Our God Reigns
CLICK TO LISTEN: Our God Reigns By Don Chapman Our God Reigns emerged in that first wave of “choruses” way back in 1974, the same era as I Love You, Lord (1976) and Seek Ye First (1971). Songs like these are the forebears of our modern worship music. Can you imagine…

Why Are Hymns Still Popular?

1 Comment
by Taylor Brantley Why are so many old hymns still popular to this day? Are they merely being kept around by believers holding to tradition? As society and technology advances, shouldn’t the new dethrone the old? Music has a way of penetrating the soul, each type of song having its…

We love HymnCharts…it has helped us start an orchestra ministry in our small church! The parts are accessible and don’t leave the same “gaps” as most orchestrations. We appreciate what you do. God bless your ministry!

I use your charts almost every Sunday, and love them. You have done such a great job giving new life and spirit to old hymns. Your website is easy to use, and all charts are so accessible. Well done!

Our congregation is incredibly receptive to your quality arrangements of the old hymns. The elder saints can still hear the tune they love so much and generation x/z feel like they’re singing new praise and worship songs and are digging the “deep” lyrics. I think your product is the best on the market.

I just wanted to say how much I am thankful for your work. Trying to blend hymns with modern worship songs is extremely difficult. You site is bridging the gap.

I just want to say thank you for doing this. It is REALLY hard to find all the things you’re offering in one place WITH a small orchestration. I just joined our church up! A+.

I want to sing, “Have I told you lately that I love you…!” Your Advent/Christmas hymn arrangements have made this season (for 3 years now) so easy & wonderful!

These arrangements are great – we have a worship band and don’t usually include many hymns, but since I’ve found this site I’ve used at least one per week – great job!

I use your hymns every week. HymnCharts is part of my job description. I don’t plan a service without it. I also recommended this site to my friends from other churches.
