Welcome

Hi. My name is Spencer Mangum and I arrange hymns on the piano in my spare time. These songs are completely free and are here for you. The only thing I get out of doing this is the hope that other people will enjoy it. As I am LDS (aka mormon), a number of my arrangements are specific to my faith. However, I also have a number of arrangements of other traditional hymns that are common among most Christian denominations. If you like what you find here, please share this website with your friends. Also, please leave comments. It's the only way I know if you enjoy it or not.

The text of this hymn was written in 1680 by German Calvinist Joachim Neander (1650-1680). Neander set his music to the melody of "Lobe Den Herren" from the "Stralsund Gesangbuch" (Published in 1665. Stralsund is a german city with Gesangbuch simply being german for hymnal.) Catherine Winkworth then later translated this hymn to English in 1863. (1, 2). The original hymn words and music is available in SATB format here.

  1. This would be my favorite. Maybe because it seems like a lesser known hymn . . .

  3. WOW! Fantastic.... "Let the Amen Sound from His people again. Join me in glad adoration" This may be lesser know with the LDS crowd, but this is a battle cry hymn in the UMC and Baptist churches! I adore this arrangement! You really have a gift for arranging hymns/music!

  8. Thank you so much for sharing your music, your talent freely. As a fellow musician I understand how much work it is to actually get your music down in notation (especially if you're using finale haha). Anyway, if you are planning on doing another one soon, please please PLEASE do this one! I loved it the most. I will be playing your Joseph Smith Medley this Sunday for offertory and I will come back and let you know how my church reacted to it!
    Thanks again!
