Why the separate pages for "Real Key"
and "Capo Key"?
To accommodate for a wide variety of musicians
that will be using the music on our site, we wanted to avoid
some of the hassles that come with playing in "mixed company":
transposing (capoed) and non-transposing (non-capoed) instruments.
The next question is "Why not put them on the same page?"
Well, at times it becomes confusing to look at a page with 2
sets of chords, so to clear this up, we've made different pages
to avoid all confusion. If you're making multiple copies and
just don't want to deal with copying both pages, just handwrite
in the proper chords on one of the charts; at least you don't
have to transpose everything in your head! :)
What about Traditional Music sources, like
Irish and Celtic?
On the authors page, there is a link to Various
Folk Sources. On this page you will find all hymns that
have come out of different national heritages, such as Irish,
German, and even Chinese!
What about any corrections to the printed edition
of the Hymnbook?
Thanks to contributions by a number of members
in the Indelible Grace community, we have found a few of the
unavoidable mishaps that were made in the first edition of the
Hymnbook. If you purchased a copy of the book, go to the corrections
page to read about what needs to be changed and print out
the new pages. These corrected pages have already been updated
on the website, so there is no need to worry about these corrections
I would like to make format my own overheads
and/or chord charts. Where can I get a file with just the lyrics?
We're sure that most groups out there have a certain
way they would like to make their overheads, or would like to
paste the lyrics into a powerpoint file, or, heaven forbid,
not sing every verse that we've made available in our pre-made
overhead and chord chart files. To keep you (or your church's
secretary) from having to retype all the lyrics, we've made
the entire file of lyrics available to download so you can edit
to your heart's content. We've posted them on the Other
What is the RUF Hymnbook?
A collection of lead sheets for 143 songs
(including the Indelible Grace songs) used by Belmont University's
Reformed University Fellowship. The Hymnbook also includes three
CDs that present samples of the songs in demonstration format
(i.e. guitar and voice) to aid worship leaders.
What is the Indelible Grace Songbook, Vol.
A collection of the 31 songs from the CDs
Indelible Grace and Pilgrim Days: Indelible Grace II.
What format are the RUF Hymnbook and Indelible
Grace Songbook in?
Both feature lead sheet format (i.e. melody
lines and chords).
What are the differences between the RUF Hymnbook
and Indelible Grace Songbook?
The IG Songbook follows more closely the
rhythms sung on Indelible Grace and Pilgrim Days, while the
RUF Hymnbook tries to present a version of the songs that is
better for group singing (including the appropriate keys). This
only affects 5 or 6 songs.
Can I make copies of the sheet music?
Churches can make non-commercial copies of
the music in the RUF Hymnbook and IG Songbook, as well as copies
of the "learner" CDs that come with the RUF Hymnbook.
Making copies of the IG CDs (Indelible Grace and Pilgrim Days)
is not allowed. Please make sure your church or group has a
CCLI license, available from CCLI.com.
Reporting your use of these songs through CCLI will help the
writers continue using their gifts!
When will the piano music be available for
the songs on the Indelible Grace CDs?
We are still working on them-- hopefully
sometime in the first quarter of 2003.
My church/group is recording its own CD, and
some of your songs are on it. How do we get permission to do
this, and how do we compensate the writers?
Email Kevin Twit (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the details about
your CD, and he will direct you towards the appropriate publisher.
