  1. Tim, this is well done and very informative to any Lutheran. This information should eventually be published for other congregations to use to better inform members on our worship.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Faith! I plan to post information on the hymns, Psalms, and scripture readings that make up our worship life. If you’d like this to be shared with other congregations, just tell them about this site!

    1. Dan, I hadn’t listened to the Time Out podcast before your comment. It’s good to see others combining Bible study and hymnody (a natural match) and putting them out there on the web. Keep up the good work!

  3. Tim – I love your blog. Thanks!
    Is there any way that you could put a footnote in your blog entry to tell us what the other hymns are for the upcoming Sunday’s Divine Service?
    Keep up the great work!

    1. If you want all the Scripture readings and songs/hymns for Sundays at St Paul, McAllen, you can get all that information at the St Paul Music Ministry Facebook Page. If you “like” the page, you should automatically get all the information on your facebook home page.

  4. Hello Tim —
    I was searching for the words to Stephen Starke’s “All you works of God, bless the Lord”, and I enjoyed your introduction to this modern version of the canticle we know in our church as the “Benedicite”. We would like to use these words in our Earth Day service, but when I downloaded it from CCLI, I found that they left out 2 very important verses, from “Sing you sun and moon above” to “Clouds and thunder, you lightnings bright”. Do you know how we could contact Stephen P. Starke to get his permission to use his whole song? I found his blog, but there is no email contact there, or on his church website. I hope you can help.

  5. Elizabeth,
    I believe the entire song is covered under onlicense.net. I would try their website and see if you can get a single use permission to use the text of the hymn.

  6. Tim,
    Wow! What a great site to stumble across in a search for lyrics. Thank you for your insight and keep up the great work. I have plenty of negative things to say about the internet – but here is a valuable use of it. A believer in Wyoming is blessed by a believer in Texas. Thanks be to God! God bless!
