Short songs to welcome the word

This habit of singing a song to ‘Welcome the Word’ has a long tradition in Christian worship. The short songs offered here go to well-known tunes that can be found in most hymn books by looking up the metre of each song or the name of one of the suggested tunes.

The ten songs in this initial collection are all by John Campbell (who also holds the copyright) with some involvement from Lance Stone. They are free to use as you wish but please acknowledge authorship in any printed or projected words. They are in pdf format and also Microsoft Word format for ease of copying and pasting into other documents, Powerpoint or song projection programs.
