308 in Voices as One 2 is Brenton Brown’s “Lord, Reign In Me”, which I have already blogged under it’s other name “Over All the Earth.”
309 is Aaron Thompson doing a version of Psalm 103. It says it is the ICEL text but it looks a paraphrase to me.
It is a medium rock song for Pentecost and the Easter season that will fill many liturgical niches. The verses are listed for a cantor but apart from syncopation there is nothing to deter an assembly from singing the whole song.
The sheet music can be purchased at WLP and also at Sheet Music Plus. For some reason the preview of sheet music is only at Sheet Music Plus so you can find the text hidden there. There is also a snippet of the song to listen to at WLP.
Rock backings are BIAB’s bread and butter and it made up a solo guitar line to compliment the melody.
I've worked my way through the As One Voice books and other collections making backings on Band in a Box to help me (& you if you're interested) learn new songs for church. This is aimed at churches and musicians that own the collections but haven't exploited them fully. If you don't have them they are certainly worth buying. This site is educational, nonprofit and designed to enhance the commercial prospects of songwriters. This site does not distribute copyrighted sheet music.
Any opinions expressed here are personal views and not the responsibility of any Church.
All music backings posted are created by myself and the intention is for them to be used to learn the songs. If any copyright holder wishes me to cease publicising and promoting their wares and directing people to where sheet music can be legally purchased please let me know.

This book is hugely recommended and I suggest you go to the AOV site and buy a copy.
