    [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.

    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.

    This song on Romans 8 could be sung as a coda to my setting of Psalm 3 (same key) or as a stand-alone Scripture song. Though I took quite a bit of liberty with the text, I think it still conveys the spirit of Romans 8.

    I originally recorded this song as a pop-punk retune of the hymn text by Bessie Porter Head. Naturally, the idea was met with some skepticism. But beneath the hood is a perfectly singable congregational song. You see? Songs are just like people. Sometimes beneath a prickly punk facade is a placid heart of gold.

    The verses of “O Holy Spirit, Come!” are based on “Veni Creator Spiritus,” a chant from the 10th century. I wrote a new translation of the 7 verse Latin text, created new harmonies, and added a refrain. In the end, the song spans some 11 centuries of singing to the Holy Spirit.

    This song was featured in a Reformed Worship article (March 2013 No.107, p18) and on the Cardiphonia compilation CD, Pentecost Songs.

    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.

    William Walsham How is best known as the author of “For All the Saints,” but he wrote almost a hundred other hymns, including this one: “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.” It continues by focusing on the light of Christ, praying that Christ’s light would dispel the darkness of our lives. This wonderful old text now has a fresh coat of (musical) paint!

    This song is loosely based on John Chandler’s text “O Christ, Our Hope, Our Heart’s Desire,” a translation of the Latin hymn, “Jesu, nostra redemption, amor et desiderium.” It explores our dying and rising with Christ–a perfect theme for Easter season.

    What does it sound like when the stones cry out (Luke 19:40), the mountains and hills burst into song, the trees of the field clap their hands (Isaiah 55:12), and creation groans (Romans 8:22)? It seems that we humans are not the only ones to praise their Creator and lament their fallen state while awaiting the coming Kingdom. “Prairie Prelude” paints a picture of the creation lifting up its voice so exuberantly that it invites us to join its song of praise.
