    If you don't have the album of the same name, get it now! I bought this book so our men's group at church would learn "Jesus Gave Me Water". We decided we couldn't learn it in 2 weeks, so we're still working on it.

    I found in singing some of the songs from this book; that Sam Cooke was one great spirit. I found the pattern from the sheet, and then saw his spirit grow in the performing. The Music is tops.
