How wonderful and convenient to have your hymnal on your iPad. This is a full featured complete SDA eHymnal with professionally typeset (not scanned) 4-part harmony music scores and lyrics that are ultra sharp and clear. Contains all of the 695 hymns from the Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal® plus many more from the "old" hymnal and other choruses. Also has all of the responsive readings. As a bonus, many of the hymns have professionally recorded organ accompaniment. Use the accompaniment for congregational singing, or to meditate on during your personal devotions. 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 Seventh-day Adventist 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 notes and 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 and recorded all of the hymns 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.
This app is neither endorsed by nor affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church®.
Because of the large number of songs, it will take about 15 minutes initially to download and install this app. No internet connection is required after the installation.

What's New in Version 4.8
added share hymn feature
Great Hymnal App
I had another hymnal app for awhile and it did fine; however, it had no musical score. With SDA Hymnal I am loving playing hymns on the organ from off my iPad! I can set up the whole service by bookmarking all the hymns and responses in the service (by tapping and holding the hymn it auto-bookmarks). Then a right flick will take you to the next hymn in the bookmark list. Very handy! The hymnal does not dim out but stays on till you go to another app or turn it off. Very important in the middle of a hymn! I like that all the responsive readings are included, complete with bold and plain text for antiphonal readings, all which mean I no longer need the "hardcopy" hymnal! I thank the developer for this great tool and the quick responses he always gives when I ask a question.
SDA Church Hymnal
Great App, I love it. I'm a church organist, and this is the App I've used for for years in playing at church. I love the fact that it has several praise songs that are not included in the hard copy of this hymnal. It is very well put together. Pages are turned by simply swiping left or right. Direct input of hymn numbers would aid easier access to hymns in addition to scrolling through the hymn numbers or titles.
Love it, just needs a few things
This app is great, and the ability to work offline is wonderful. Would like to be able to search by topics, like the back of the hymnal does, and to more easily search the added choruses. I love that they are included! Also wish I could make several sets of bookmarked hymns. For example, my favorites, plus songs I've picked for church service, plus maybe another song service.
