Is a custom hymnal right for your church?
A custom hymnal provides a beautiful testament in a timeless expression of faith, featuring
- A dedication page
- Recognition of congregation donors
- A history of your local church
- The order of service for your church
- Hymns chosen by your church members
- Psalms, creeds, and other tenets of faith
When music from multiple sources can be combined into a single book, and future changes can be made easily and affordably, a custom hymnal is a terrific option for any congregation. The custom hymnal for your church can combine the flexibility of disposable worship aids with the durability of a bound hymnal, and will reflect the faith and fellowship of your congregation.
The decision regarding what hymns to include in a custom hymnal can be an overwhelming one. We’ve made it easier by getting you started! We begin by helping you select any traditional hymns that are in the public domain. This often includes many congregational favorites, and it’s a terrific place to start, since print permissions will not be a cost. A partial list of our growing number of public domain hymns can be found here, as well as samples of our hymn design.
Your choices are not limited to just what you see here, though. We work with other publishers to secure the print permissions to use their music as well. Selections from publishers such as Augsburg Fortress, Concordia, GIA, Hope, OCP, Westminster John Knox, WLP, and many others can be included in your choices. If you can name it, you can have it!
We can offer mass settings using modern notation or chant notation. We also have hymns in Latin and Spanish – contact us to find out more!
