For each song there is information that may include a description of the song, a brief biography of the author or composer, and information for worship leaders such as performance suggestions and available arrangements.
The search box allows you to search for songs by first line, author, composer, topic, or scripture passages quoted or alluded to. A handy keypad lets you jump immediately to a song by number.
Our revolutionary FlexScores are available for many of the songs. These include large print, lead sheet, and instrumental versions. You can adjust the music and text size of the scores and transpose them.
The versions offered for FlexScores include pew, lead sheet, violin, viola, cello, bass, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, alto saxophone, soprano or tenor saxophone, horn, trumpet, trombone, and tuba. For the instrumental versions, the music is transposed into an appropriate range and displayed in an appropriate clef for the instrument.
A network connection is required to view most FlexScores.
