THIS COLLECTION was the result of a survey of many lists of "Most Popular Hymns and Spiritual Songs" and includes things like the BBC's Songs Of Praise top 100 Hymns.
However, the popularity index used was cross-country and cross-denominational but was largely informed by USA, UK, Australia, Canada and English language lists. The emphasis is on old time traditional hymns. Interestingly, "people derived" lists as opposed to those generated by record companies and organisations like the CCLI consist of almost entirely of old traditional songs whereas the organisation derived lists seem to mostly exclude traditional hymns. I hope this collection will provide a useful resource for students of hymnody or perhaps even church directors of music wishing to include more traditional hymns in services.

What is Included, oddities and conventions.

Nearly all the songs have chords marked on the lyrics but there are a small handful that have lyrics only, these were included because they were obviously popular but no suitable chord transcriptions were available. Some of the hymns have more than one version reflecting different keys or sometimes very different interpretations reflecting the transcribers opinion, expertise or taste. Spellings used in some of the hymns may reflect national preferrences, for example the American propencity to leave out "u"s, or of the English to add them!

Most of the lyric lines start at the top and you just read down but some use sheet music convention:

Verse 1 line 1 ( read this line first)
Verse 2 line 1 ( read this line third)
Verse 3 line 1 ( read this line fifth)

Verse 1 line 2( read this line second
Verse 2 line 2 ( read this line forth)
Verse 3 line 2 (read this line sixth)
