  • November 21, 2011 Great song; good arrangement, but..

    The song is one of the best contemporary sacred songs around and this arrangement is pretty much THE arrangement for low voice. For the most part the piano accompaniment is very well done. The problem is the way the arrangement is structured. If you sing the song exactly as written...

    , you'd be singing the chorus no less than 5 times. It's a beautiful chorus, but even a beautiful chorus can be overdone. My accompanist and I cut out the first chorus and replaced it with a flute intro, then we cut chorus number 4 and went directly from verse 3 to verse 4. This worked out very well.

  • August 26, 2011 Lyrics + melody = lovely combo

    I heard this song at a friend's funeral and had to have it. I play the piano and Celtic harp. I was hoping against hope that it would be free of accidentals, making it easier to play on the harp. It's not, but at least the chorus is...

    , and that's the prettiest part of the song. The sheet music is long, but nicely laid out. Each verse has it's own music, but the pages are folded, rather than separate, making it easy to figure out where you are. I would say that this music is for intermediate piano players or advanced beginners who are willing to practice.

  • March 12, 2007 Written for those with only hope left

    This song spoke to me at a wedding years ago. I lost my daughter to leukemia two days ago and we sang this together regularly. Now I make arrangements for her funeral, and this piece speaks incredible words of hope and faith - answering many of my questions. This piece will...

    leave no heart untouched at a wedding or funeral services. I will always see this song as a memorial to my daughter Kaylie (b.1/15/01 - d.3/10/07). You will never be dissapointed when it becomes a memorial or a remembrance for one of your loved ones. Blessings! Take care!

    I agree with the previous posting. This song is absoultely wonderful at funerals...Faith and reassurance is vital. This song demonstrates this message.
