Hymns of Grace
About Hymns of Grace
Hymns of Grace is a project of Grace Community Church & The Master's Seminary.
This collection of approximately 355 titles features current standard hymns (some rearranged musically), old hymns that have fallen out of use, many wonderful new hymns, and more than 90 responsive Scripture readings (ESV).
John MacArthur says, "Hymns are wonderful didactic tools, filled with Scripture and sound doctrine, a medium for teaching and admonishing one another, as we are commanded to do in Colossians 3:16. We are in danger of losing a rich heritage of hymnody as some of the best hymns of our faith fall into neglect. Let's revive some of the great hymns that have fallen into disuse, and along with the best hymns written today, delve deeply into this rich Christian hymnology."

I am grateful to have seven hymns I have helped author be included in this project alongside so many writers I learn from and am so helped by. Consider this new resource and allow these hymns to be a continual encouragement in your walk with Christ.
