Due to COVID-19, we are operating on an extremely limited basis. We cannot promise any expedited orders or shipping during this time. We will do our best to ship all orders that are placed at the very earliest time possible. We appreciate your support and understanding.

In 2000 Wayne Leupold Editions, Inc. (now Leupold Editions, a division of the Leupold Foundation) began publishing small collections (hymnaries) of new hymn texts and tunes by some of the finest living hymn text writers and hymn tune composers. Currently, over fifty have been published, which contain a total of over 3500 new texts and tunes. All of these are now in a database, which we intend soon to put on our planned new website.

Since recent times, the present and the foreseeable future pose challenges for all of us, we decided to share one of our hymns that speaks to adversity and challenge in this newsletter. Feel free to download it, share, print, and use it in any way that you think appropriate (click image below to download). All we ask is that you give credit, as shown at the bottom of the hymn.
