Come Hear

"Long ago, the Word of God came to the prophets by divine inspiration. To share the news, and to spread the word, they would issue this blanket invitation: Come hear! Come hear the Word of the Lord..." Effective choral writing by Ruth Elaine Schram and Scott D. Schram remind us that God still has a powerful message for all time revealed in His Word. Suitable any time of year.

At Christmastime, we are reminded of the tender care of a young mother over her tiny Child, and this lyric anthem so beautifully captures those quiet moments in a humble stable.

"Love is more than a feeling, more like a decision to honor and care for someone..." Lilting 6/8 meter keeps the message of this song moving along toward the climactic promise, "I will love you" that is the heart of every successful family relationship. For SATB and unison children's voices, suitable for general services, family emphasis, or special occasion Sundays such as Mother's Day, Father's Day, or Children's Day.

Love is Like a Rose
View scoreView score page 1, page 2
MP3 audioClick here to listen
Expressive and lyrical, this song is rich with symbolism. "Love is like a rose ... a seed must be planted, weeded and watered, and patiently we wait for it to bloom ... It takes the sun to make the flowers reach up for the sky; it's the wintry wind that makes the roots dig deep into the earth..." Would be effective sung at weddings or church services focusing on the family.

BG2373 - SATB

Precious Promises (cover) Precious Promises
This lovely song begins with men singing their promise: "I will be a godly husband, lovingly I'll lead the way, cherishing my family and honoring the promises I've made." Women then pick up the melody with their commitment. Children promise to seek God's will to become the person God desires; youth and/or single adults sing "...I will honor His design by waiting faithfully." The whole family is given the opportunity to renew their commitment to God's standard and their vows and promises. Perfect for Christian Family Sunday or any time a family emphasis is desired.
