Supplement concordance

The Supplement Hymns are included in the new version of Concord. However, for those who have not yet purchased the new product, a simple Excel spreadsheet if offered below as a free download. Using the Find feature (Control F), users can do simple one word searches of the Supplement hymns.

This compilation follows the plan of the Hymnal Concordance. Almost all words are indexed. Exceptions are some prepositions, conjunctions, articles, and a few other minor words. It references only new hymn texts. Therefore, the 11 texts that are duplicated from the Hymnal are not included here. Please note these new musical settings in the Supplement when referencing these same texts in the Hymnal. They are listed below.
