About This Site
This site was created in the fall of 2004 with the goal of making an extensive database, including a collection of both well-known hymns and those that are hard to find. It was amazing to see how many hymns have been written over the years. By the end of 2005, we had compiled over 6,000 songs and we were nowhere near completion. By the end of 2006, we had over 10,000 songs, and became the largest Christian Lyrics website on the internet. In 2007 we expanded the website and created new features, including a polling system to determine the most popular hymn of all time, and we also created two Hymn-Writing contests for our visitors. The site continued to grow up to 11,000+ songs and we nearly reached 1 million visitors for the year (903,987). In 2008, two staff members were hired to keep up with the high demand for Christian hymns. We have high goals for 2008, including increasing our database to 15,000 songs, easier search functions, newsletters, new contests, and more. Our staff is committed to providing our visitors with the hymns and other Christian songs they are seeking.
This website was created with the inspiration of 1st Corinthians 10:31, which states "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God". This resource's main purpose is glorifying God and His Son, Jesus Christ. All of the songs on this site point to our Creator, and especially the mercy He showed us by sending His Son to die on the cross for our sins. Without this sacrifice, we would still be at enmity with God, lost forever by the weight of our sins, and all of these hymns found on this site would have been written in vain. But thanks be to God for His wonderful grace. There are thousands and thousands of songs on this site giving praise to God, and He deserves all the glory.
