Encouraging people around the world since 1991 !!


Finally someone who understands that musicians need
sheet music or chords to go with the words."  

(Remender, from




I just wanted you to know that I love your site 
with all the free songs of worship and praise. 
I sing in my church and I'm going to learn some of them 
and teach them to the congregation.  May God continue to 
bless your ministry of song and music. 
(Claudia, from Canada)

Several volunteers have transcribed many New Hope songs
into PDF format.  Thank you brothers !!!

If any of you have the time and resources to
create PDF sheet music,
I need help in arranging
over more New Hope songs!

NOTE:  There are many musicwrite programs available.
Many publishers use "Finale"'
The Cyberhymnal uses "Noteworthy"
Adrian V. Miller uses 'Encore" by G-Vox, 
who also sell a less expensive program called "MusicTime de Luxe".

I just thought I would send a note thanking you for allowing your song 
“When I Am Afraid” to be in the public domain for non-profit use.  It’s a great song 
and aligns perfectly with the Psalm I am trying to teach my pre-schoolers at church.  
I found it late last night needing a song for this morning.  Since you had both the 
audio recording and the sheet music available I was easily able to learn the 
song in order to teach it today.

Splendor and Majesty

Lars Lovegren

Born 1947, East Stroudsburg, PA.   Both parents active American Baptists as were their families several generations back.  I proudly claim kinship with F. O. Nelson, who founded the Swedish Baptist Church in Sweden and in North America.  His brother was my 2-great-grandfather. When my we moved to Spring Grove, PA in 1952, we lived across the street from a Lutheran church while the closest Baptist church was 10 miles away.  When we joined the Lutheran church, several of my grandfather's generation were still bitter over their great-uncle's persecution by Lutheran state church in Sweden.

Became musically competent in high school as both a singer and instrumentalist (tuba and bassoon).  Graduated from Lebanon Valley College, Annville PA 1969 with Music Ed.but never taught music.  Attended Lutheran Theological Seminary, Gettysburg for 1 year.  Since 1972, employed as caseworker by PA Dept of Public Welfare determining eligibility for Medicaid and Food Stamps.
I've been a member of several community choruses, have sung some amateur opera.  Active at church iwithchoir and handbell choir.
I've been arranging music for about 5 years, setting almost a thousand pieces of medieval & renaissance repertoire found on WWW for an early music trio that I've been with since 1983.  We perform on recorders, natural flutes, krumhorns, virginal, plucked psaltery, and we all sing.
I've also set familiar SATBs of about 80 Christmas carols on single-page scores for intermediate instrumentalists so that all players read from the same score to accompany singers.  (Will gladly share a limited set with any of your site's visitors.  I'm hoping to sell pdfs of the whole set for about $20/set.)
My interest in religious music ranges from Gregorian chant and medieval carols thru shaped-note hymns in Southern Harmony and Sacred Harp.  I'm especially fond of the Christmas SATBs by Alfred Burt known as The Burt Carols. 
I found New Hope Music while looking for Advent and Christmas music on CyberHymnal 2 years ago.  My 3 kids, Sarah, Jacob and Hannah have been a big hit at church, singing "He Shall Be Called" for Advent programs the last 2 years.
I'm not a fan of most contemporary music, preferring to wait until the good stuff establishes itself as future classics.  I believe many of your pieces will survive this process and still be sung 50 or more years from now.  Your music is the first I have done making SATB harmonizations.
