This is the lyrics only version. Take a look at my other version on the store with full four-part harmony music scores.

How wonderful and convenient to have your hymnal on your iPhone. This is a full featured complete Methodist eHymnal lyrics that are ultra sharp and clear. Contains all of the hymns from the United Methodist Hymnal®. No internet connection is needed to use this hymnal after installation.

The user interface has a clean look with no ads, and very easy to use. You can quickly and easily find the hymn that you want either by selecting from the alphabetical index of hymn titles and first lines, the numerical index of hymn numbers based on the United Methodist Hymnal®, or your own bookmark list. There is a full featured bookmark list for you to add songs that you need for quick access. Use the search feature to quickly search for words in the title or first line, or just enter a hymn number to jump directly to that hymn. You can also swipe left or right to go to the next or previous song just like turning pages in the printed hymnal. But what is even better is that the swipe turning sequence can either be in numerical hymn number order, alphabetical hymn title order, or bookmark list order. Zoom in for larger texts both in portrait or landscape orientations.

God has given me two talents-music and computer. I have been a church pianist and organist for several decades, and professionally, I am a computer professor. So putting these two talents together, I have personally written this app to be a blessing to others. I hope that you will like it and be blessed by it. I would love to hear from you to tell me how I can improve this app.

Enjoy the app, wish it was a complete hymnal

I really enjoy this app. I love being able to grab my iPad when there is no hymnal available. Also, as a person with a disability, holding the hymnal for several songs in a row is challenging. The iPad is so much lighter and easier to handle. The search features are great, I love how easy it is to find the song I am looking for.

On the other hand, I do wish it was a complete hymnal. I wish it contained the psalter as well as the materials traditionally found in the front. Sometimes I just feel a little left out.


Great for closing my devotion times!

This app helps me to remember the words to my favorite hymns and sing them as a part of my prayer time. I use it every day. Thanks to the developer for the effort to make this app available!

Mix text


I think the major thing missing is the rights/credit to the lyric writers. I don't think these words can be published with out that information. I would also like to see the music. Otherwise I like the app.
