All Creatures of our God and King
All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name
The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power†
Christ the Lord is Risen Today
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
Doxology (Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow)
God Be With You Till We Meet Again
Jesus the Very Thought of Thee
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms
My Hope is Built on Nothing Less
Nothing but the Blood of Jesus
O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us
Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus
What a Friend We Have in Jesus
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
When the Saints Go Marching In
+ + + + + + +
His Eye is on the Sparrow (performance version)

This is really nice work Lisa. God bless you.
Thank you so much for this. It’s a lifesaver!
I’m so glad! In case you haven’t seen them, I also recently posted all of the hymns on YouTube, complete with easy-to-read lyrics: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJLkT0NkJ-O7KnmXIvm5H6A/videos?view_as=subscriber
God bless you!
For teachers who are not solist, this is a great help in the life of teaching. The Elderly relates to the hymns when they can’t with anything else. The biggest smile come across their face, their eyes light up and their mouths open and they begin to sing. Thank you so much for not forgetting the Elderly! To God be the Glory!
A thousand times yes! Thanks for the lovely comment.
Just what I needed! Printable lyrics files would be helpful.
Thanks Tad! You’ll find printed lyrics here: https://spiritualeldercare.com/portfolio/hymnals/
