May We Hear A Shout of Praise
May We Hear A Shout of Praise reflects on how people can experience God through the animals He's created. With a simple melody and richly harmonic accompaniment, this hymn is a perfect fit for a service that includes the blessing of the animals.
We Come to Worship (Complete Collection)
We Come to Worship includes the following 12 hymns for the congregation. Each hymn can be used with the original tunes by Trevor Hicks or the familiar tunes that each is tailored to:
-As One We Mourn, As One We Cry
-Child of the Father
-Creator God, who Gave the Earth its Rise
-Father in Heaven, We Pray
-For Gifts Bestowed, We Thank Thee
-God Calls Us To Be Loving
-Here in This Hour We Come to Worship
-In Times of Sorrow
-No One Knows the Day or Hour
-Praise the Newborn King
-Rejoice, This is the Day
-The Armor of God, the Believers Defense
The Armor of God, the Believers Defense
The Armor of God, the Believers Defense is a musical rendering of Ephesians 6:11-17. Owing to the controversy surrounding hymns such as Onward, Christian Soldiers, I set out to write a hymn that was based solidly in the scriptures and without the added metaphors that hymns like Onward Christian Soldiers controversially use.
Rejoice, This is the Day
Rejoice, This is the Day is a hymn for Easter Sunday, especially when the liturgical calendar includes the reading from Mark’s Gospel. The text was written when I was much younger to be sung with the tune of I Vow To Thee My Country, known more frequently in church as O God Beyond All Praising.
Praise the Newborn King
Praise the Newborn King is a Christmas hymn. I had long wanted to write a Christmas hymn to an Easter tune to make a musical connection between the birth of Jesus and the reason He was born — which was to die for our redemption. Thus, the texts and tunes of Praise the Newborn King and Jesus Christ is Risen Today are interchangeable. Naturally, Praise the Newborn King stands alone as an joyous new Christmas hymn that explores the celebration of the birth of Christ.
No One Knows the Day or Hour
No One Knows the Day or Hour is a hymn that I joke uses the technique of one of Cole Porter’s infamous “list songs.” In this case, many Biblical verses all pertaining to the return of Jesus (Matthew 24:36; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; James 5:7 to name a few) are used to create a hymn that tells us to be prepared for His returning.
In Times of Sorrow
In Times of Sorrow is a hymn of comfort in times of mourning. It refers to a number of Biblical texts, many of which are frequently used in funerals, such as Psalm 23:4, Revelation 21:4, Psalm 30:11 and Matthew 5:4.
Here in this Hour We Come to Worship
Here in This Hour We Come to Worship is based off of a sermon I peached about the role of music in divine worship. Each verse focuses on one of the five roles I discussed, which are that music is praise, music is prayer, music is offering, music is the Word of God, and music is unifying. It is very well suited as a hymn for the beginning of worship.
God Calls Us To Be Loving
God Calls Us To Be Loving uses scripture passages such as Matthew 20:16, 1 John 1:8, John 8:7 to illustrate that we are not to judge one another nor assume ones relationship with God. Rather, we are to love one another. This hymn was inspired by the unfortunate trend of politicians making overtures about their opponents religiosity and faith.
For Gifts Bestowed, We Thank Thee
For Gifts Bestowed, We Thank Thee is a hymn of thanksgiving for the gifts that God has provided. It encourages the use of these gifts in worship and in the world, making this hymn a good choice for the end of the service. It could also be used at a recognition service for church volunteers.
Father in Heaven, We Pray
Father in Heav’n, We Pray was inspired after watching a number of movies and documentaries about the Titanic, a topic that has been of interest to me since I was a child. Written to be compatible with Nearer, My God, To Thee, a hymn practically synonymous with the Titanic tragedy, the text uses the metaphor of ships, storms and oceans to speak of God’s protective power when we trust in Him.
Creator God, Who Gave the Earth Its Rise
Creator God, Who Gave the Earth its Rise is an update of a text that I wrote a number of years ago, while the tune is newly written for this volume. I like to think of this hymn as a creed hymn. It concerns the creation of the world by our most powerful God and puts emphasis on God’s Word and His greatest gift, the gift of Jesus Christ.
Child of the Father
Child of the Father is a hymn for baptism. The first three verses each discuss the relationship between the Trinity and the newly baptized, while the fourth incorporates the promise of the congregation to welcome and support the newly baptized. It need not only be used at the baptism of a baby or child, the words being perfectly suitable for adult baptisms as we are all God’s children.
As One We Mourn, As One We Cry
As One We Mourn, As One We Cry was the first hymn written for We Come To Worship. It was written in response to the reprehensible murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
