Here is a collection of some beautiful and popular melodies from five different countries. Most of them started out as centuries-old folk songs and then were used as Christian hymns. In the process, they have become much beloved by people who have sung them in worship for many years. These melodies have been beautifully adapted to words from the Bahá’í scriptures of Bahá’u’lláh, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, and the Báb, often making them rhyme, with a coherent and meaningful theme for each song that you will love to sing together.

God, O God, We Glorify Thee is set to the Welsh hymn tune Hyfrydol. In the Stronghold of Thy Love is set to the Taiwanese/Chinese hymn tune known as Beng-Li. The Lord of Grace Abounding is melodically inspired by the ballad Carrickfergus from Ireland. Llef (Cry) comes from Wales. Lord of the Kingdom is set to the Irish hymn tune Slane. Praise Be to God is based on Jerusalem, a famous hymn that was used in the movie Chariots of Fire. For All Times is another Irish song, Skibereen. The last three songs will be very familiar: All Praise, My God, Be Unto Thee is set to Amazing Grace or the hymn tune New Britain from England. Thou, Giver of Light is set to the Scottish/English tune called Waly,Waly or The Water is Wide. Finally, Cheer Thou Our Hearts finds its musical roots in Scotland the Brave.

The running theme is to praise God, so all of them would be appropriate in almost any religious setting!
