I’ve been writing poetry for most of my life. This page will be a place where I (try to remember to) share Lutheran hymn texts as I make them available. 🙂
- A Man Looks Out Upon a Field (Der Lieben Sonne Licht und Pracht, 87876688)
- Come, Lord Jesus. We as Guest (Vienna, 7777)
- Come, Gathered Again (Text and accompaniment)
- The Day is Drawing New, But When (Wenn Wir in Hochsten Noten Sein or Windham, 8888)
Life is hard enough without stealing from others. Please do not pretend my work is yours; however, if you’d like to use any of these, you have my permission to do so for individual and congregational use. Anything else, just ask, and I’ll likely say, “Sure.”
Other Lutheran hymn text sites include:
- Epistles from Exile (Rev. Alan Kornacki, Jr)
- Hymnastics (Rev. Robert Mayes)
- New Lutheran Hymns (Rev. Mark Preus)
- Revive Lutheran Hymns (an older site)
- You Are Not Your Own (John George Fleischmann)
Need a composer? I try to keep a list of willing Lutheran composers here. Need a hymnwriter? I try to keep a list of those here.
Also, feel free to buy my Ecclesial Poetry. God-willing, it will become a series. It also contains hymn texts unavailable through my blog.
