Baptist Hymnal Resources
Welcome to HymnSite.com's Baptist Hymnal resources based on The Baptist Hymnal, 1991 Edition. As with other hymnal resources on this site, we have included only those materials which are in the public domain under US law. You are welcome to use our text and midi files in any way you like. Please see our copyrights page concerning other resources.
Resources planned for this section
When available, each hymn will include the following resources:
- Hymn Text. The text will be displayed in html and there will also be a link to a plain text file.
- MIDI Files. Hymns are available in MIDI (musical instrument digital interface) format, which can be used in synthesizers and computer programs. Unlike most MIDI files on the internet, HymnSite.com's MIDI files contain SATB (soprano, alto, tenor, and bass) parts in separate tracks. This supports rehearsal of individual parts, and also facilitates part writing and transposition, which was the original purpose for HymnSite.com's earliest resources.
- Piano scores. Piano scores in pdf format.
- Slide Decks. Slide files in ppt and pptx file formats. These are the slides used to create the HymnSite.com traditional hymn videos posted at YouTube and Sermon.net.
- Video Links. Links to videos posted at YouTube and Sermon.net.
- Audio and Video Disks and Downloads. Where resources are available as disks or downloads, links will be developed and posted on the hymn pages, too.
