A site to list excellent hymns of the faith, with their words and tunes

This is brand new, baby steps to this endeavor.  I have much work to do on it of course, but intend to record a tune as an audio file for each hymn, as well as put links to the English and Spanish words for each.  I did the first three I think;  excuse the misspellings – particularly in the Spanish, for now; the first versions I did were scanned to .rtf format, which distorted some spelling.  I will re-do them, and the others, either in .jpg, or .pdf when I can devote some more time to this.

*If anyone can tell me how to make this site work more like I thought it would, I would appreciate it.  I wanted the ‘categories’ to be like pages… and put the different hymns there, according to category.  But apparently this Word Press site is just for blogging… and thus far I haven’t been able to figure out how to build pages, put content on them, and have titled links to them!  (Like Edmond, I have two daughters, and am busy in graduate school 😉  So nice to have Edmond ‘like’ and ‘follow’ this site.  The great hymns are an incredible blessing from the Lord, an Help to the Christian in his or her warfare through this pilgrim land.  The Lord bless you Edmond.

Yours in Jesus,  Christian.
