This is a delightful song for gathering and welcome by David Haas.
This was another song he sang at the Perth APMN conference and it was well received. He noted at one point that we should not be fearful of songs that hit Ds, but as a matter a charity I would be tempted to drop the key from G to F. They are six verses for a generous opening.
The sheet music can be purchased at GIA, where the text is in their preview and also here.
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.
