Serving a Contemporary Church
Too often these days, the great content of our classic hymns -- and the gospel message -- is blurred for today's Christians by the use of archaic language. Just as we seek to communicate Bible texts in contemporary, understandable English, so too we should be willing to consider adjusting our hymns to communicate the gospel in contemporary English. This site is devoted to providing modern lyric updates for classic hymns.
Serving Song Leaders
Refreshed language is only one of the methods by which the appeal of classic hymns can increased with contemporary singers. In addition to updated lyrics, this site will pass along other suggestions that leaders have discovered for giving classic hymns fresh appeal. Suggestions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and will then be posted (if appropriate).
