As is with all Sovereign Grace Music, the lead sheets and chord charts to these hymns are available for Free at http://sovereigngracemusic.org/

All 14 of these “new” hymns (I say new, because of the recent musical treatment, not the text–in most cases)  are written with the expressed interest of their use in congregational worship.   Therefore, is it no surprise that they are in  singable keys and the rhythm is well within in the grasp most congregations.  One song that immediately stands out is “Nothing That My Hands Can Do.” This is a very powerful song.  The text is richly seated in the gospel, and the melodic line and harmonic structure support it well.  Verse one is the realization that it is impossible for man to save himself; it is Christ who saves.  Verse two is the right and just response to such a Savior–praise.  Verse three, the final verse, contains another realization, the realization that life is short and soon we will “look upon our Savior’s scars and know they were for me.”
