More about Song Sheets
Dating to the sixteenth century in the British Isles, song sheets first became popular in the United States in the early 1800s. Their rich American history is chronicled by The Library of Congress’ American Memory collection in an article entitled “America Singing.”
Today, as in the past, song sheets are like little seeds with which to plant a song. We hope Hymnscript’s song sheets will encourage you to dig into the classic hymns of the Christian faith and discover the truths they so eloquently and passionately tell.
