The “One Voice Hymnal Collection” is a curated treasure of 234 of the most well known and beloved hymns and gospel songs of our Christian faith. The collection was envisioned and created by Tom Fettke and Johnny Hall to encourage God’s people to come together, in large or small groups, and worship Him in song.
One Voice – Hymns for the People of God
The center piece of the One Voice Hymnal Collection is the new hymnal “One Voice – Hymns for the People of God”…an unparalleled worship resource. Consider the following:
- The 234 hymns and gospel songs in the One Voice Hymnal are a masterful blend of beloved songs that have stood the test of time and a generous selection of current hymns, written by writers like Keith Getty, Stuart Townend, Ken Bible, Michael W. Smith, Twila Paris, Martin Nystrom, and many others.
- Nearly half of the songs in the One Voice Hymnal are skillfully arranged with key changes, introductions, last verse harmonizations, choral endings, segues, transitions, repeat settings, and refrains. (See indexes pages 375-377)
- Instrumentalists love the large print 3 ring binder One Voice Hymnal Accompaniment Edition with guitar chords. Keyboardist love the many songs with keyboard arrangements in the accompaniment.With the Accompaniment Edition instrumentalists can perform tasteful solos or ensembles adding to the worship experience.
- Scripture readings are included throughout the hymnal along with inspiring quotes from some of the greatest leaders in church history. These encourage a spirit of devotion in corporate and individual use.
- Speaking of scripture, two indexes are included in this hymnal to aid in personal devotion and corporate worship. On page 336 is the index entitled ABOUT THE HYMNS. Each song alphabetically listed with scripture and devotional thoughts included.Also on page 364 is the index SCRIPTURE BACKGROUNDS IN BIBLICAL ORDER.
