In 1967, Frank P. Nickel published a booklet of songs and hymns, titled "Sing and Give Thanks." The contents are listed below and each one will be added to the blog as time permits. Clicking highlighted titles will take you to the related blog entry with the song lyrics.

Besides his original songs, Rev. Nickel included in the songbook (with permission), poems and songs written by others, some of which he translated, added words, or arranged in a new musical setting. Original lyricists and composers are noted.

This booklet is out of print but a PDF scan (including music and lyrics) is available by email. Contact Joyce for a copy.
