This page has three main kinds of links: (1) Links to my own original music and my MIDI sequences of other favorite hymns and worship songs; (2) Links to other MIDI hymns around the Internet; and (3) Links that help you with MIDI, unzipping, and other technicalities.

(1) ORIGINAL MIDI HYMNS, SONGS, AND ADAPTATIONS

This is the home for my original MIDI compositions and adaptations.

Most of these are optimized for General MIDI synthesizer, and arranged in four-part harmony with instrumentation suitable for choir and congregation. The style (for most of these) is simple and durable, trying to follow the example set by Lowell Mason, the great 19th century composer/arranger.

For some of these, there is a MIDI file, lyrics, and documentation, all compressed into one .ZIP file for each hymn. Also, the MIDI files and lyrics are available separately. Some also have the MIDI file encoded on the same page as the lyrics.

Christmas Carols

Here are four of my favorites, located at this website. Printed words and music for these songs, and hundreds more, are available in MY FAVORITE HYMNAL (please click HERE!)

Individual Songs

And now, on with the individual songs . . .

"When I Survey The Wondrous Cross"

This is considered by many people to be the greatest hymn in the English language. The poem is by Isaac Watts, and the music is the hymn tune HAMBURG, by Lowell Mason, based on the First Gregorian Chant. MIDI sequence by Bill McGinnis. => Lyrics => Small MIDI File of HAMBURG => HTML

"Happy Mother's Day To You"

Original words and music by Rev. Bill McGinnis. Arrangement and MIDI sequence also by Rev. Bill McGinnis.
NOTE: On Mother's Day 2006, I was hoping to find a simple little Mother's Day song to sing to various mothers I know (my own mother having passed away). I wanted to find something similar to "Happy Birthday To You," which would be short, happy, simple, easy to remember. But I couldn't seem to find anything like that. Suddenly this melody popped into my head, and I wrote it down and made a MIDI file of it. Then came the words, followed by the words for another new song, "May The Lord Sweep Over You," using the same melody. Here are both of them, now in the Public Domain for everyone to use freely. Enjoy. If you want to write some new words to use with this melody (or any other melody on this page) you are invited to do so.

"Jerusalem, My Happy Home"

This is a plea from earlier Christians for a better life in heaven than they had here on earth. I selected the most powerful verses from this long text, and added new music of my own. The text was directly inspired by Revelation 21:1-8, which describes The New Jerusalem, where Christians will live forever with the Lord. The English words are more than 400 years old, but they are as clear and plaintive as if they were written yesterday. The English words are based on the words of St. Augustine, another 1,200 years earlier.

"'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus"

This is a durable favorite for many Christians, and it beautifully describes one of the main benefits of giving yourself to the Lord: You can trust Him to take care of you! Lyrics by Louisa M. R. Stead, music by William J. Kirkpatrick, MIDI sequence by Bill McGinnis. => ZIP: "'Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus" => Lyrics and Chords => Large MIDI => HTML

The most important single thing you can do in your life is to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, in which He is your personal Lord and Saviour, and you are His trusting follower. If you do this one thing, you will find joy and happiness now and forever. If you do not do this one thing, you will continue to deprive yourself of the many blessings God has intended for you to receive. If you have not yet accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour, you can do so now by clicking HERE! >

(2) OTHER MIDI HYMNS AROUND THE INTERNET

Here Are Some of My Favorites

I selected a few of my favorite hymns, with performance-quality MIDI files, in the Public Domain, from various places around the Internet; then copied the MIDI files without major change, reformatted the words, and made new HTML pages.

My Lord, What A Morning
Shall We Gather At The River?
Dear Lord And Father Of Mankind
Christ The Lord Is Risen Today
Come, Ye Thankful People, Come
Is Not This The Land Of Beulah? (I wrote the MIDI sequence on this one.)
Softly And Tenderly, Jesus Is Calling

Next, you can visit these two, which both have an excellent selection of MIDI hymns with related lyrics.
