Favorite Hymns/Hymnals Premium

Nathan Bruley
This app contains 9 hymnals containing 1400+ hymns and Christian songs lyrics (along with some audio). The audio (approx. 600 tunes) is basic-- the purpose of this app is to aid in singing rather than to provide music recordings to listen to.

The reason this app is not free is it contains lyrics to over 90 copyrighted Christian songs and hymns (no audio for copyrighted songs at this point). Over a year of researching, licensing, coding, and waiting for administrators has gone into adding the copyrighted hymns alone.

This may be the only app of its kind to contain these hymns. Some of these hymns include:
- How Deep the Father's Love for Us
- How Great Thou Art
- You are my all in all
- The Power of the Cross
- He Touched Me
- In Christ Alone
- Majesty
- Great is Thy Faithfulness
- The Crayon Box Song
- and many more
