    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.

  • Jesus Lover of My Soul

    Charles Wesley’s hymn “Jesus, Lover of My Soul”  is a timeless text that has been forever in search of a timeless tune. This choral setting brings out the pathos of the text, an urgent prayer in time of need. The anthem is scored for SATB Choir and Piano and can be purchased from GIA Music.

    I love this hymn so much that I included it in an episode of the Greg Scheer Music Podcast as well as a Lent hymn series that explored a different musical setting of “Jesus, Lover of My Soul” every week.

  • O One with God the Father

    William Walsham How is best known as the author of “For All the Saints,” but he wrote almost a hundred other hymns, including “O One with God the Father.” It is a powerful Epiphany text that begins with the theme of Colossians 1:15, “The Son is the image of the invisible God.” Surprisingly few hymns address the oneness of the Father and Son, so it is also appropriate when focusing on the theme “We believe in Jesus Christ his only Son” from the Apostles’ Creed.

    PowerPoint slides for congregational singing are available from Digital Songs and Hymns.
