Each file contains a the hymn number and title, the hymn's tune title, the stanzas arranged in the order they appear in the hymnal (including repeated refrains). Composer and copyright information is provided at the end of the text file.

The format is compatible with many text editors and word processing software, such as Microsoft Word. This is useful for "cutting & pasting" hymn text into other documents, such as worship bulletins and choir handouts.
