Visitor's Name: Gloria KnowlesComments: I feel I must write and tell you how much I appreciate the songs that have been written for worship and made available on your site. We have used many of them for our worship team at our church. You make it so easy...the song, the midi and the sheet music and now you even offer different keys....thank you so much.Sign Time: 12/23/07
I play for our worship team and we are a small church on Vancouver island, British Columbia, Canada. Although we belong to the ccli I often find songs which are suitable for our congregation. The fact that the songts are scripture based is what is so appealing to me ( and our Pastor)..... We don't like the 7-11 songs....seven words sang eleven times. You are truly gifted, and may God continue to bless you and the songs which you provide for us to use.

Visitor's Name: RayComments: Dear Pastor Jerry,Sign Time: 12/15/07
A couple of weeks ago I started to tell you something and I didn't finish (at least I don't feel as though I told you enough of what was on my heart). Please forgive me for not finishing the thought then and also for being so long in following up on what I began and didn't finish. I have had some difficulty sleeping during the night and I wanted to share my experience. The phrase from an old gospel song "He giveth me songs in the night" has become more real to me. When I am unable to sleep, songs pop into my mind. One which has repeatedly come to mind is "Reign in my heart." Each time it comes to mind my thoughts go to you and I want to say thank you for this song and the many others you have written that have blessed and continue to bless the hearts of many us.
We have heard about the procedure which is coming up. We will continue to pray for you and hope that this will be the answer and the end to this trial.

Visitor's Name: ChristaComments: I came across your site recently and found the wonderful song "The Story of Christmas". I hadn't heard or seen this song before and It is such a nice melody yet simple. This is in line with what I would like to see being used more in our churches as opposed to the modern melodies.Sign Time: 11/1/07
Do you have this song in another key? I think in the midi version it sounds like there is a key change for the third verse and I'm wondering if it would be possible to get that version to use.
Many thanks for your generosity and freedom for non-profit duplication and use.

Visitor's Name: Frank ColonComments: I am a new comer to this webpage...And after a short visit to this webpage, I thank God that He has allowed people like you, to share the gift of music with us.

Yet, as a first time visitor to your website, I greet you as one who is appreciative of your ministry and your music.Sign Time: 10/23/07
As a Latino Minister of Music in a bilingual congregation, I'm often faced with the challenge of translating a given praise song either from English to Spanish or from Spanish to English... Regarding "Emmanuel, God with us", I'd like your permission to translate it into Spanish. I'd be more than happy to share the final translation with you, should you be interested...I've learned that there are beautiful praise songs in both languages, which unfortunately are solely in the language originally written. One of my goals is to find these praise songs and share them with our congregation, thus adding to our praise and worship repetiore...As such, should you consider the possibilities of sharing your ministry with our latino (spanish speaking), congregations, I would love an opportunity to share with you some of the things I've done...
In the interim, I'm going to enjoy teaching and singing "Emmnauel, God with us" (in both languages)...

Visitor's Name: Brian WigginsComments: Dear Bro. Jerry Hamblen:Sign Time: 7/27/07
Every now and then in this great big world, the Lord shows us in a very special way just how small it is. I first came across the singpraises.com website simply based on a Google search. When I saw the name "Hamblen," I thought .... No, couldn't be. But it is!!
This is Brian Wiggins, Lonnie and Eunice Wiggins' oldest child (and only son). My family and I are living in Elk Grove (southern Sacramento County) and we are members at Cypress MBC. We have lived here now since 1988. I married Missie Rigsby (her father is Rob Rigsby and she grew up in the Freedom church - Watsonville area). We have two boys, Daniel (18) and Philip (15).
I remember that you followed Dad in pastoring the church in Sunnyvale. I was a young boy of about 10 at the time. As you probably recall, Dad pastored the Salinas church from about 1975 to 1982. I graduated from North Salinas HS in 1979 and got my AA from Hartnell JC in 1981. I then moved to Fresno to attend Fresno State and got my BS in Accounting in 1983. I was only at Fresno for about 3 or 4 months when Dad resigned the Salinas church. The "Salinas" years were very important years in my life and that is really where I did the majority of what I call "growing up." I say all of that to say that your Mother and Father were wonderful people and I thought the world of them! I can still remember the Business Meeting when I was elected as Assistant Song Leader - assistant to Bro. Lester Hamblen. He gave me many, many opportunities to lead songs and he was always such an encouragement. And you know, I'm Asst. Song Director currently atCypress as well as Treasurer and, along with my wife, Youth Leaders. As a PK, I remember certain people in certain churches and for various reasons. Bro. and Sis. Hamblen are two people that I remember very well and I know they were supportive of me and, actually, our whole family. As my sisters, Cheryl and Darla, were learning to play the piano (something I should've stuck with too instead of playing basketball), Bro. Hamblen would come to the house and spend quite a while with that tuner of his and get the piano sounding as it should. Both of my sisters are wonderful pianists today!
Well...its good to stop and recall memories and people from the past that stood, as still stand, as great examples. Its truly a small world, isn't it?
And, by the way, I have spent a long time listening to some of the music on the website and I'm very impressed!! I haven't heard a song yet that I don't like!!! I hope you are able to continue writing and working on the website.
Write when you can and let me know how you and your family are doing.
Visitor's Name: JoJo LostraComments: Hello! I would like to sing "You Are God" for special music at worship service, and am wondering if there is an outside chance you have the sheet music for this song with F# and C# (My music theory is mostly forgotten, but is this the key of D?) I can reach the notes written in the key of F, however, the other one is better for me. Thank you for your time, and I thoroughly enjoyed your website tonight! Have a happy day!Sign Time: 7/23/07

No doubt you will let me know if it is not and I will edit it out.Sign Time: 6/8/07
We are covered by CCL but, interestingly, we have found that here in the UK they don't wish to know about music downloaded from the internet, only items in books.

I found "My Rock, My Cornerstone" and really enjoyed it. I've printed the sheet music, but didn't know if I could copy the music to be able to play it at the service instead of having the pianist play. I saw that you have to get permission if it's for profit, but this wouldn't be so I wasn't sure. Thanks so much for your help.Sign Time: 5/6/07
Visitor's Name: Fred LeslieComments: I have found your song Cross Over The River on a hymnal site. It plays your tune and has the words also. I am asking your permission to copy the words to the song as I gather some familiar and just good hymns to sing at a church sing-a-long at our house sometime in the future. I would strictly be a church function and your song would be sung just to glorify God and not used any further than that. If this is not possible, can you tell me where I can buy about seven one-page copies of just the words to the song. Thanks for your time. I remember your area as we used to bring kids over for Special Olympics to play floor hockey in San Diego. Tucson is a little too hot for me!Sign Time: 5/1/07

My husband and I use our talents for the Lord where-ever possible. Our talents are not great but want to show others the road to God, if possible.

We currently play for churches, nursing home and the gospel mission.
