When From Death I'm Free: A Hymn Journal for Holy Week

Music to Accompany a Hymn Journal

As you sketch, draw, color, read, meditate, and pray your way through this hymn journal for Holy Week, you might want a soundtrack for your faith walk. All of the hymns and songs in the book are available below in one format or another.

The selection here is meant to support your exploration, but not limit it. You prefer big brass? Great! Do a little searching on iTunes or YouTube and see what you come up with! Want more of an "unplugged" feel? Perfect! Search for hymns for guitar.

Maybe you want to pick a different version every time you go to engage the book. Try something new and see what works. Find a setting that speaks your heart language. Then listen to one or two you don't like as well. What's the difference? Why did it matter? What did you learn from the settings of the songs you liked least? Most? How can music become part of your faith experiment?
