Rhyme or Reason


I wrote this tune for a somewhat irregularly metered hymn text based on Ecclesiastes. Since the text talked about stretching and striving, I thought this rising melodic figure (with a chromatically descending bass) fit the them quite well.

This hymn is a free download. If you sing this song in your church please report its use to CCLI or OneLicense.
