United Methodist Worship Resources Collection

Currently, work is suspended on development of a revised official compilation of music and worship resources. Discipleship Ministries and The United Methodist Publishing House welcome suggestions for fresh and useful worship resources that may be considered for future publication. However, we are not currently able to evaluate unsolicited submissions of hymns, tunes, or liturgies.

We commend for your use the treasure chest of widely used UMC hymnody and liturgies that includes: Songs of Zion (1981), Hymns from the Four Winds (1983), The United Methodist Hymnal (1989), The United Methodist Book of Worship (1992), Mil Voces Para Celebrar (1996), Come, Let Us Worship (2001), and The Africana Hymnal (2015), along with supplemental collections such as The Cokesbury Worship Hymnal (1938), Global Praise 1, 2, and 3 (1996-2004), The Faith We Sing (2000), Upper Room Worshipbook (2006), Zion Still Sings (2007), Worship & Song (2011), and Fiesta Jubilosa (2022). All are available at

New offerings and compilations will be announced as plans for additional projects develop.
