In Hymn is the worship ministry of the International Churches of Christ (ICOC) Philippines. This special ministry lives by its theme Acts 17:28 verse: “For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” as In Hymn ministry’s mission states, “We are a ministry who believes that worship is life and life is worship.”

After many years of leading congregational worship, In Hymn has released its 16-track self-entitled album. Most of the tracks have already become staples in praise and worship services of the 31 city churches and 11 Metro Manila sectors of ICOC Philippines since the album was first launched during the 2013 Philippine Discipleship Conference with a total of 1,200 copies sold.

However, the album then was only promoted within the church and never got the chance to reach a wider audience. Thus, its world premiere release on Mother’s Day, May 10, is a great opportunity to not just promote the church but also God’s message of love and salvation.

Tyrone Ty, Worship Minister of ICOC Philippines, who composed 12 songs in the album, said, “I believe it’s a great time to release our album now that people are mostly at home. In this global crisis, we have an audience receptive to positive and inspiring music.”

Paj Pajemolin wrote three songs in the album while J. Brian Craig’s “Praises Heard Around the World” was translated into Filipino, “Papuri Sa Buong Mundo” with his permission.

The In Hymn album can be pre-saved or pre-ordered prior to the world premier release and it is also available on online music stores like Amazon, Anghami, Apple Music, MediaNet, Deezer, Google Play, You Tube, iHeartRadio, ClaroMusica, iTunes, KKbox, Napster, Pandora, Saavn, Spotify, Tidal and TikTok/Ress0.

Tyrone said the album received great reviews from disciples and non-members of ICOC alike.

He feels like the album is a gift from God. “We sit back, listen to it, and always get that feeling that somebody else wrote the lyrics or did the music for us. Personally, I always go ‘ I wrote that?’ Nothing beats knowing God used you for his purposes. That’s humbling and special!”
