Music and Hymns for Use with
Creation and Environmental Worship Services

We feel that the writings, music, and traditions of our Christian faith are rich in seasonal and natural reflection. It is our current times that overlook the call to the earth, our home, from every nook and cranny of our historic spiritual practice. In support of this tradition, the Environmental Stewardship Commission has begun collecting and posting music that can be used to augment a traditional service or as part of one of a creation and environmental worship service. Additional music options can be found in our various Creation Season projects. If you seek thematic titles to use, click here.

The following list is in continual development and will be updated whenever new titles are received. Links (marked "Listen") are to the CyberHymnal website (click on the topic "Titles") or to the Oremus Hymnal, where you can hear the melody and read the text. The link is to the CyberHymnal unless otherwise noted.
