Sing to the Lord a New Song!
This is the online home of new hymn tunes written by Dave Marney and friends. We hope you find these hymns honoring to God and a joy to sing!
Most of the hymn texts here are from older collections of religious poetry and hymns that are no longer sung. We wanted to revive these wonderful texts and give them a new musical setting, because they are full of so many helpful and encouraging truths.
The hymns are completely free to use
