We have many Christian Hymn Writers who have written fantastic songs. The hymns below are the ones that I have found that mentions birds or fowls in some way or another. The links will become active as I finish the hymn’s page. As far as I know these are all in the Public Domain. If not, let me know and I will drop it. If you know of any that I have missed, let me know. The search is still on-going.

These Hymns were mostly obtained from the Cyber Hymnal all with permission and in the public domain. This page and the hymns, writers and musician pages are under construction.

An interesting note from The Cyber Hymnal (bottom of page):
John Wesley’s singing rules for Methodists (he had a Method for everything!):
1. Learn the tune.
2. Sing them as they are printed.
3. Sing all. “If it is a cross to you, take it up and you will find a bless­ing.”
4. Sing lustily and with a good cour­age.
5. Sing mo­dest­ly. Do not bawl.
6. Sing in time. Do not run be­fore or stay be­hind.
7. Above all, sing spir­it­u­al­ly. Have an eye to God in ev­ery word you sing. Aim at pleas­ing Him more than your­self, or any other crea­ture. In order to do this, at­tend strict­ly to the sense of what you sing, and see that your heart is not car­ried away with the sound, but of­fered to God con­tin­u­al­ly.

  1. Try Again–taken from Psalm 104:

    My Soul, Thy Great Creator Praise
    by Isaac Watts

    Verse 8:

    From pleasant trees which shade the brink,
    The lark and linnet light to drink;
    Their songs the lark and linnet raise,
    And chide our silence in his praise.
