A number of people who heard my arrangement of “Jesus Cristo, Esperança do Mundo/Jesus Christ, Hope of the World” in the 2022 Calvin Worship Symposium service, “Blessed Are Those Who Hunger” have asked where they can find the music. Search no more, my friends! Downloadable PDFs of the anthem are currently available at GIA. You can pre-order the print version; it should be out in a week. For both PDF and print, visit GIA: https://www.giamusic.com/store/resource/lord-send-out-your-spirit-senor-envia-tu-espiritu-print-g10530
As part of the 2022 Calvin Worship Symposium, I led a chapel focused on Psalm 123 and the theme of mercy. The highlight of the video is a beautiful dance to my song “Have Mercy.” This chapel also marks the first time Nine Inch Nails lyrics have been quoted as part of a worship symposium service.
The song “We Are Coming, Lord, to the Table” hails from Sierra Leone. It first appeared in Global Song for Worship and is also available right here at www.gregscheer.com. But now it also in John Bell’s This Is God’s World: https://www.giamusic.com/store/resource/we-are-coming-lord-to-the-table-pdf-d1038012
Calvin University’s 2021 Service of Lessons and Carols was a beautiful event and well worth watching for the blend of traditional lessons and carols format combined with songs from throughout the globe. I had a number of arrangements included in the program, including “Jesucristo, esperanza del mundo / Jesus Christ, Hope of the World” (27:45), “Anta atheemon / You Are a Great God” (1:01:00), and “Kwake Yesu nasimama / Here on Jesus Christ I Will Stand” (1:16:57).
