contemporary rock version

             So you want contemporary worship, don't throw out good theology just to get music with a beat. In fact, you don't even need a new hymnal, let me show you what I mean..
             All the sequences and arrangements are copyrighted 1998 Rev. Richard Jordan, and are for personal enjoyment (and inspiration) only - all other rights reserved.. It may not be used for commercial purposes, nor may it be included on CDrom collections, or any archives, or included in  any website without the express written permission from Rev Richard Jordan, Zion Lutheran Church, Ocheyedan IA. However, Lutheran Churches are permitted to use up to 6 hymns on a website, so long as the notice "copyright 1997-9 Rev. Richard Jordan, used by permission" appears somewhere on the page. A link to one of the TLH Midi Project sites would be appreciated. This license only covers the midi sequences, and in no way covers the materials of the hymnal. The  Lutheran Hymnal used by permission, and is copyright Concordia Publishing House.
             If you like them, I would enjoy hearing from you, your comments tend to lead to new      arrangements. If you can do better, let us know where your page is, and we'll provide a link. It is our           philosophy that money should never stand in the way of the Gospel (paraphrasing of St. Paul) and      while the laborer is certainly worthy of their due, we operate by faith, for God will provide whatever is needed. All tunes optimized for Roland SoundCanvas GM
             Finally, if there is a TLH hymn that you would really like done, why not write and request it? It is possible that some LW hymns might also be available, so you can ask, but be advised that many have copyrighted melodies which will not expire for years. Remember that many LW and LBW hymns are still using melodies as found in TLH
