Good selection - keep it up. Don't be discouraged if there are not many comments as they are only used for one week. But thanks for your commitment

I visit this site every week and always appreciate the breadth of sources used and the diversity of styles suggested. Thanks for the regular theological comments and the reminders about inclusive language for God as well as for us - it's important but easy to overlook. Thanks also for your dedication in providing such a valuable resource freely and consistently.

Even this Baptist from the south uses your resource almost weekly. On behalf of my congregation, I thank you.

Thanks so much for all of your work! I visit your site every week, and often find something unexpected and wonderful :)

I'm a lucky liturgist, to have stumbled on your knowledge and generosity.

All best to you!

Thank you so very much for your work on this - it's an invaluable resource for me every week!! I love your suggestions and almost always find something I hadn't thought of that works just right for us. THANK YOU!!

Thanks! I check your list almost every week. As the only music person at a small church and not having access to many resources your music selections have been a great help. There's almost always some familiar songs - and I like looking up others that I may not have heard before.

Thank you for your hard work. Your blog is the first place I look when I start to pick out music for Sunday. You have such good suggestions and have given me some great ideas. Keep up the good work!

I have used other hymnsites through the years as a pastor, but yours is the best at providing a variety of styles of music to coordinate with the texts. I always enjoy your suggestions and find music to lift up the themes I am working with. I so appreciate your work and am embarrassed that I have never said so before. Thank you!

Natalie, this is such a great resource. It is my first stop when choosing hymns for the week and offers a wonderful range and inspiration. Being in NZ i especially appreciate the Southern Hemisphere hymns which find their way into the selections. Thank you and many blessings!

I check the list every week as I prepare worship - I like that the suggestions come from more than one music resource, and cover a variety of styles.

I'm a curate in a group of churches in North Kent, UK - always on the look out for music that is beautiful, relevant and engaging - and your site hits the target every time. I look at it often.
Thank you for all the work that you must put into it.

I look at your blog every week and appreciate your suggestions. - Unfortunately, as another UK user, I don't have access to some of the hymn books you mention. This is a a pity, as sometimes your write up makes the hymn sound "just right" and then I can't find it! - But, even so, thanks for your help.

Thank you for a very clear, accessible resource to use. I use this website every week and I love all the suggestions and encouraging comments. Don't stop what you do!

Narelle said...

I use this every week to help with my selections. Through it I have found new songs that I have been able to introduce in our services. Thank you so much.

Natalie, your patient work is a huge resource for my own contribution at www.localsharedministry.com and I always acknowledge your work. Thanks so much.

Are you familiar with the contemporary worship songs at www.resoundworship.org e.g. this new one: http://www.resoundworship.org/song/spirit_of_god and the fabulous "In the beginning"
