    Michael Perry’s 1973 setting of the Benedictus (Luke 1:68-79), “Blest Be the God of Israel” is usually paired with MERLE’S TUNE by Hal Hopson. That’s a beautiful tune, but sometimes a hymn needs more brawn than beauty. This new tune has a lot of similarities to the Peruvian Gloria, which could be used as an extended Amen at the end of the song.

    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.

    This classic text has been set to a new tune which has a mesmerizing Celtic feel. The song’s theme of consecration and aspiration makes it a great way to close a service. This song is also included in Faith Alive’s Sing with Me song book with a simplified piano accompaniment and some lyric changes.

    This short, four-part benediction from Philippians 4:7 connects to Psalm 4. It could be used as a coda to my Psalm 4 song “I Rest in You” or sung as a choral benediction at the end of a worship service.

  • Maybe the Rain

    [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!

    An arrangement for solo voice and piano is published by Augsburg Fortress in With All My Heart, vol. 2 and an arrangement for SAB choir and flute appears in Augsburg Fortress collection Wade in the Water: Easy Choral Music for All Ages.

  • MINOR CELEBRATION

    This tune is a festive minor tune, which to some people is an oxymoron. To Ralph Vaughan Williams and me, it makes complete sense.

    This is an orphan tune, waiting to be adopted by a text to call its own. If you write your own lyrics for this melody or pair it with an existing text, please report its use to CCLI or OneLicense, and let me know how you’ve used it.

    MY CROSBY is a straight-up Gospel hymn for CMD texts. Since it’s written in the style of Fanny Crosby, I called the tune MY CROSBY. (Which seemed more appropriate than MY FANNY.)

    This is an orphan tune, waiting to be adopted by a text to call its own. If you write lyrics for this melody or pair it with an existing text, please report its use to CCLI or OneLicense and let me know how you’ve used it.

    Inspired by a hymn text of W.F. Lloyd, “My Times Are in Your Hands” is a prayer of trust that offers our lives to God in faith, whether our days be dark or bright, long or short. It can be sung at New Years’ services, in times of trial, or when embarking on new ministries.

    This song is mentioned in Greg’s podcast, “New Year.
