Something old, something new…

Something old, something new…

It has been a while since we last shared music on the site, so we thought we’d offer three pieces of audio in this one post. The first two are hymns from the 19th century, the third is a song so new that unless you happened to be in worship on Sunday December 8, there’s no way you’ve heard it!

  • First up is “It is Well with my Soul”, recorded on Sunday September 29. This is an a cappella version, with Trish Vrolijk taking the lead. The words for the hymn are by Horatio Spafford, with music by Philip Bliss.

  • Next is “I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say”, led by Tatiana Friesen on both viola and lead voice. The hymn is set to a traditional celtic tune, with words by Ho­ra­ti­us Bo­nar.

  • Finally a brand new one for the season of Advent, written by Mike Koop. Based on the gospel reading for the second Sunday of Advent (Matthew 3:1-12), the song has only two lines, which are repeated in a cyclical and meditative manner: “Prepare the way, prepare the way for the Lord / Make his paths straight.”
