I’ve liked this song ever since I heard it about 20 years ago at Westover Church. I sang it in church last night and was pretty pleased, though I wish the recording had a little more balance between the piano and the vocals. Someday maybe we’ll start using a P/A for our music.
I sang this song in church this morning. Had quite a case of the nerves, probably because I was playing guitar. I love to play and sing, but am not very accomplished. I sound nervous, but the guitar tone is very beautiful. The audience/congregation was kind, as always. The presidents of the PEC’s of both the Northern AND Southern Provinces were on-hand, too, which was a nice surprise!

We had the full choir th is morning and I thought we sounded pretty good, not sure the recording does it justice but I still enjoy having some record of our performances. We have a lot of fun.
I solo’d this morning at church. Since it was “Youth Sunday” the anthem became the prelude but I think it came off ok.
