First Release of New Hymns Brings Back Beloved Classics for Latter-day Saints

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

As part of its ongoing digital music release, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has unveiled the first batch of new hymns. Included in the thirteen songs are many beloved classics Latter-day Saints will recognize.

 

Here is the full list of songs: 

  • Come, thou Fount of Every Blessing
  • When the Savior Comes Again
  • It Is Well with My Soul
  • I Will Walk with Jesus
  • His Eyes Is on the Sparrow
  • Think a Sacred Song
  • As Bread Is Broken
  • Bread of Life, Living Water
  • Gethsemane
  • Hail the Day that Sees Him Rise 
  • He Is Born, the Divine Christ Child
  • What Child Is This?
  • Star Bright

All of the songs are available in the Gospel Library App under a new icon labeled Hymns—For Home and Church. You can also access all of the new music and follow updates online here.

Because physical copies of the new hymnal will not be available until 2026 when the project is completed, the Church has provided (and will continue to provide) both recordings and sheet music for all the hymns released in the interim. 

They have also created a helpful video about how music leaders and families can learn and use the new hymns in church meetings and at home. Watch below. 

 

Hymns—For Home and Church will be a collection of 450–500 hymns and children’s songs combined into a single resource. The main collection will include the same song list and numbering across all languages in print and digital channels.

The initial releases will include the hymns in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. Music translation, printing, and distribution for the worldwide Church is a major undertaking. Therefore, the leaders of the Church have decided to release Hymns—For Home and Church in language phases, starting in 2026. 50 languages will be completed before the end of 2030. Each language will receive several small batches of new music spaced out over approximately two and a half years before the release of the full hymnbook.
