Unpublished Music & Articles

Free Downloads of Unpublished Songs

Those of us who labor week after week to help our communities proclaim and celebrate their faith in song, who help them sing their cries of lament, anger and grief often (quickly) need a song after a natural or human-caused disaster, or in response to a personal loss within your community, or in times of gratitude and rejoicing.

The time between the submission of a song and its print publcation can be many months. For that reason, I will be periodically offering songs for free download by communities whenever it seems appropriate for their prayer. You may download and use these songs without charge until they are published. You can write me to receive an assembly part at martyhaugen@mac.com.

If you do download these songs, please check this website occasionally for information about its publication and, when a song is published, please honor the gift of its free use by replacing your copies with published copies.

(Please note: Choose to Hope and This is God's Table, which were previously available here, will be published by February, 2019, as part of my new collection, Choose to Hope. I would ask that, if you wish to continue to use the songs after that time, you replace your copies with the published copies).

Thank you, Marty


Dream of God's Circle of Mercy

This song was written for own faith community in Advent, 2018, as an expression of hope that all people of faith can imagine, pray for and work for a more inclusive, loving and compassionate world.

You can download this song for free and use it until (whenever) it is published. I only ask that you write me at martyhaugen@mac.com to let me know the community that will be using it. I will happily send you an assembly in response.
