When COVID-19 hit, I turned my dementia-friendly MP3 audio files of 86 classic hymns and 20 Christmas carols into MP4 videos and posted them on YouTube. However, if you’re unable to stream from YouTube, here are the video files with sing-along lyrics.
You may download these videos for personal ministry use. Just click the vertical three-dot icon in the lower right corner of each video and choose “Download.”
If you use these videos in a presentation of your own (such as PowerPoint), please include a slide at the end with this credit line: “Hymn videos © SpiritualEldercare.com. Used by permission.”
Please do not modify these files. Also, please do not distribute the videos on any platform without my written permission — thank you!
Sing-Along Hymn Videos with Lyrics
Bonus Performance Tracks
These two hymns are less suitable for sing-along, but the vocals and piano are so beautiful that I turned them into worship videos with images. (Lyrics are still included.)
His Eye is On the Sparrow: vocals by Cheryl Jackson, piano by Dr. Michael A. Williams
Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus: piano and vocals by Dr. Michael A. Williams
The following language is included on the final slide of these four hymns, which are not in the public domain and for which I secured copyright permission.
