Customer Reviews

Great help to my morning devotions!

Bayou mom

This is a great little app to really enrich your devotional time! Sometimes I see parts of a hymn written in different books and I want to hear the rest of the song. I simply can type in those words and this app will not only show me the entire Hymn, but will also play the song for me to learn as well! Great idea! Thanks for the App!

Note from the programmer

Nathan Bruley

This app has been created for multiple reasons: not to replace a physical hymn book but to enable singing on the go, learning of tunes, and searching of lyrics (for free). This first version appears to have a bug in audio playback, but I hope to have that fixed soon in the next release.



Greatly appreciate the work to put this together. We as a family are grateful to our Lord Jesus for it. In addition to the lyrics, it also provides the option to play the tunes that go with each hymn, a good way to learn to sing those ones that we don't know.
