Cyber Hymnal

Many of my Christian Burmese friends are familiar with the historical hymns of  the Christian faith.  Missionaries who came to their country translated the hymns into Burmese and even published hymnals over the 300 years since Adinoram Judson’s time.

I have found a link to a website the will play this music on the computer.  I trust it will be a blessing to the new arrivals in America as it was to me to revisit the music of my childhood.   Click here to open a new opportunity to worship God and minister with your Burmese friends.

Here is also the written URL:

For three years our Burmese arrivals have visted the American adult Sunday school classes to sing Christmas Carols together.   This can be a source to identify tunes which are common to both American and Burmese Christians.
