Songs for the Lord is a book of twenty-four original hymns and songs suitable for use in church worship services, inspirational music programs, and private devotions. Some are specifically Christian in content. All of them express faith in the Lord God.
Songs for the Lord offers a range of traditional and contemporary styles:
– hand-clapping gospel
– intimate prayer songs
– congregational hymns
– musical sermons
– even humorous material for a troubadour-style performer
Each song features a sheet music image, a separate text section from which lyrics can be copied and pasted for church bulletins, projection screens, etc., and a selection of relevant Bible verses.
The sheet music does not include SATB parts, harmonization, or accompaniment.
Purchasers of this publication can obtain the sheet music in printable PDF format and MP3 audio files of the song melodies at no extra cost.
