NEW HYMNS

The Hymn Society has just put a collection of hymns addressing the issue of refugees and immigrants online, The collection is: SINGING WELCOME: HYMNS AND SONGS OF HOSPITALITY TO REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS. Here is link to the pdf that explains the contents.

The hymns can be used free of charge for two months, and then later reproduced for congregational use through licensing programs. John Horman and Rev. Mary Keithahn have a hymn in the collection: “When Jesus was a refugee.” --they also had two hymns in an earlier online collection, “Hymns in Times of Crises.”



Mary Nelson Keithahn from First Church in Rapid City and composer John D. Horman have collaborated on their fourth hymn collection, Faith That Lets Us Sing: Fifty New Hymns and Short Worship Songs, recently published by Wayne Leupold Editions. Several hymns adapted from MAD camp musicals at Placerville are included, along with “When Mary Heard An Angel Say,” a hymn commissioned by Robert Frieberg in memory of Evonne Frieberg for a community Advent Service of Lessons and Carols in Beresford in 2008. Another hymn is based on the baptismal prayer in the UCC Book of Worship.
