This Library is a collection of sites and resources that I have found personally useful in ministry. None of these are sponsored or affiliated with The Worshiping Songwriter. This is just a collection of resources to help those in ministry.
Contemporary worship sound, catchy singable melodies, rich and deep God glorifying lyrics. Free lead sheets, chord sheets, and lyrics.
Dan’s recommendations: Everything, but especially “Only A Holy God”, “Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me”, “Nothing But The Blood”
Free lead/chord sheets for modern hymn style songs. Substantial lyrics, acoustic sound, and a great way to experience liturgy through song.
