Many modern churches use a video projector to present songs, videos, pictures, PowerPoint etc. For this you need some software and thankfully there are now many good and free song presentation programs available.
I am making my electronic songbooks available for free download and use in your song presentation program.
The standard script of the Kurdish Worship Songbook is the Kurdish-Arabic script for all songs.
As a side product of transcribing the sheet music, I got also some songs with a romanized (Latini) transcription. I'm happy to make them available too, as they can be useful for Kurdish groups in Europe where not all can read the Kurdish-Arabic script. If needed you can present the songs or Bible verses bilingual with VideoPsalm.
Unfortunately, there is a small problem with all programs that they do not fully support right to left writing. The Kurdish Arabic script shows ok except the punctuation marks at the end of a line will jump to the right.
OpenSong is a free, open-source software application created to manage lyrics, chords, lead sheets, overheads, computer projection, and more.
It is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
I've worked with it for many years and I prefer it for its simplicity.
Check out its features from their website and give it a try:
The Opensong XML song files can be imported by almost every other program if you already use or prefer a different program.
Here are the Opensong song folders for download. They are usually copied into (C:\Users\MYNAME\Documents\OpenSong\Songs).
These are the most actual song files I have, but there are still not all songs from "Goraniye Rohiekan" prepared. Also some have an optional Bible verse some not.
The best free worship presentation software for Windows that I've found.
Some extra features that makes it distinct from other programs:

Below you can download the current version of the Kurdish Songbooks for VideoPsalm.

I'm currently working on completing the Goraniye Rohiekan songbook with its 155 songs.
