Deeper than the Sea$0.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/deeper_than_the_sea-praise.mp3"][/audio]
This rendition of Psalm 36:5-9 is an expansive folk-rock song of praise to the Creator whose love surpasses the grandeur of all creation. There are two versions of the song. First, it is available as a free leadsheet for congregation singing. Next, it is arranged for choir, piano, and congregation, with chord symbols so it can be accompanied by guitar and bass to get that “folk choir” kind of sound. It is a simple arrangement that will only take one rehearsal to learn, but it is by no means simplistic. The choral arrangement is published by GIA. (You can purchase the song at GIA or view a sample online.) If your church follows the lectionary, this scripture passage comes up on the second week of Epiphany in year C, and in Holy Week every year.
From the Dust You Shall Raise Us Up$0.00 – $25.00 Select options
I had an unfortunate opportunity to reflect on mortality when my friend Christina Mandang was hit by a car. Her sudden and senseless death at the age of 38 reminded me once again how fleeting our lives are. It is truly ashes to ashes and dust to dust, with precious little time in between. The good news is that the God who breathed life into dust to create Adam and who resurrected Jesus from the grave is the same God who has promised to raise us from death to eternal life.

Both the shepherds’ quiet homage to the newborn king and the angels’ jubilant “Gloria in excelsis Deo!” are brought together musically in this dramatic new text. The choir and pianist will be challenged by the piece, and excited by the results of their work.

This text by William Cowper is a profound statement on faith in God’s providence: “You fearful saints fresh courage take, the clouds you so much dread are filled with mercy and shall break with blessings on your head.” This anthem builds throughout, creating a powerful musical expression of trust.
In a Still, Small Voice$0.00 – $25.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/still_small_voice.mp3"][/audio]
This quiet ballad uses I Kings 19:11-13 and events from Jesus’ ministry to reflect on hearing the still, small voice of the Lord in our world today. The song can be effectively led by a praise team or sung as an anthem by choir.

The Nunc Dimmittis, Simeon’s song of praise in Luke, is set to a flowing melody for congregation. What better benediction could there be at the end of a worship service than to join Simeon in saying “Let us depart in peace for our eyes have seen the Savior”?

Mary’s Song (Our King of Peace)$0.00 – $35.00 Select options[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/marys_song.mp3"][/audio]
Wendell Kimbrough’s setting of Mary’s Song captures the wonder, fear, and obedience of Mary’s response to Gabriel’s message. The song is a perfect fit for Advent, Christmas, and Lessons and Carols services. The choral arrangement places the choir alongside folk instruments, which is a lovely marriage for those who lead blended worship.
Maybe the Rain$0.00 Add to cart[audio mp3="https://gregscheer.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/maybe_the_rain.mp3"][/audio]
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, this song was written for Bellefield Presbyterian Church’s pianist, Jeff Stehle. The lyrics remind us that the “rain” we experience in our lives may be exactly what is needed for us to grow–an idea which took on new meaning when Jeff was diagnosed with cancer. Though he’s in remission, I’d ask that you would say a quick prayer on his behalf when you play this song-just think of it as royalties paid in prayers!
