Our new collection published in 2022
Subscribe to the Praise! newsletter
A growing collection of over 1300 items, including words, lead sheets and full score. Our collection in- cludes everything we published in our Praise! Hymnbook in 2000, plus over 300 items we have published online since then. We continue to publish new items each year.
An annual subscription of just £15 gives you access to all the words, music and background information on each item. There is no limit to the number of downloads you can do. This is the best value licence available to pastors, service leaders and musicians for your church needs.
Our collection is a curated selection of quality and trusted psalms, hymns and songs, drawing on what is published elsewhere. We conduct a careful review of all the words as part of our editorial process, and only publish only what agrees with our doctrinal basis.
Our search engine allows you to search all items by number, key words, first lines, theme, scripture reference and authors. You can also search tunes by name and metre.
You can tag any item as a favourite and it will show up in your favourites list.
We provide a copyright management service for authors and composers, acting on their behalf to handle enquiries from other publishers.
It has been a core conviction for us that just as we read the Bible in contemporary English, so traditional hymns in archaic language should also be sensitively revised to help those who are new to church to worship God.
Increasingly, churches are rediscovering the Book of Psalms as the deepest source of spiritual truth. Our collection includes a version of every psalm, some that are close to the text.

‘From its inception I have always loved and supported the Praise! project and ethos. As a church leader and musician I want access to the absolute best of old and new, presented in contemporary and accessible language. Praise! is the only place that gives me all of this backed by an absolute certainty about theological rigour.’
At last some of the great old hymns are made accessible to a younger generation.
We have enjoyed singing familiar older hymns in updated language and learning new hymns and songs, especially from the psalms. All in all it has been a great asset in our public worship.
For a pastor-teacher who wants to preach from the Scriptures each week & to have songs that fit with the Scriptures taught, the Praise! website is a wonderful tool to help achieve that goal.
As both a pastor and a musician, I am so thankful for Praise! Having easy access (particularly via the website) to a theologically rigorous set of old and new hymns in contemporary language has been such a blessing to me and those I serve.
Praise! has proved to be an invaluable resource for us to use in our corporate worship, breathing fresh life into many good older hymns and bringing together some of the best modern songs of today. We warmly commend it to other churches.
We have found it helpful to reverently sing many well-loved hymns in modern English. It has also been refreshing to learn many new, Christ-exalting hymns.
If you would like your church to be listed here, please do contact us. We would be delighted to hear from you.
