I’ve got a song (or three) to sing, O

Hi. Excuse the Gilbert & Sullivan song reference 🙂
It’s a while since I song-posted on my blog. Meanwhile since getting back from North America seven weeks ago, I’ve written three pieces of worship music, posted them on Facebook and YouTube, but until now, not on my blog.  So here goes.   We’ll go in reverse chronological order.

  1. Manger

A short Christmas instrumental which we’ll use Christmas Eve at my church in Brisbane, Australia.  I really struggled to find a not-schmaltzy or overblown piece of Christmas music.  So I wrote my own.

2. Communion

This one arose out of reflecting on the words of institution and thanksgiving during the sacrament, and feeling perhaps it’s time for something quite folky.

3. Amazing

Dale and I, along with friends Jan & Glenn from Cairns, and often with members of Dale’s USA family enjoyed the most wonderful seven weeks in USA and Canada just a few months ago.  So many highlights. For me, I keep on reflecting on the wonder and amazement of God’s creation – rocky, snowcapped mountains, mountain lakes; desert sands, cliffs; beautiful forests, and yet oceans and streams.   Amazing … perhaps one of the most personal songs I’ve written.  Also one of my few songs of praise.

Enjoy … and by the way, if you wish, “Sing, O …”
