Effective song incorporating the beautiful hymn "Blest Be the Tie that Binds" (by John Fawcett and Hans G. Nageli), using SATB voices and children's choir (or solo voice or small ensemble). "...May we be slow to anger and fast to forgive; may joy and patience abound where we live; at home, sweet home, let there be love..." Perfect for Mother's Day, Father's Day, Dedications, or any general service with a family emphasis.

This inventive arrangement of the traditional folk song has an alternate text for Christmas.  "Hush, little baby, don't you cry, Mama's gonna sing you a lullaby.  In that lullaby she sings, you'll hear the brush of angels' wings ..."  With a gently rocking interlude to separate the verses and a few harmonic surprises, this is sweet and lovely all the way.

Many know this song by Backer, Davis, Cook, and Greenaway as the Coca-Cola commercial theme from the '70's.  It's an ideal, lighthearted song of brotherhood and togetherness that is timeless and uplifting.

Your Love Is Greater

"Your love is greater than all our guilt.  Your mercy is deeper than all our shame.  How desperately we needed a Savior, so God sent You, and willingly You came..."  This emotive choral offering features a reflexive text that befits the Lenten season.  Lyrical lines are composed in minor on the verses, then shift to major on the chorus.  The rolling piano accompaniment supports the voices for a lovely statement of sincerity, admiration, and appreciation for His sacrifice.
