I used to post here all the time, so I apologize for not contributing lately. The genesis of this hymn started with a simple statement from my best friend complaining about the simplicity of contemporary Christian music’s lyrics and chords. I told him if I ever wrote a hymn I would try my best to put more meat in the words especially. The following week I was contacted by a client and dear friend who is absolutely one of the greatest trombone players in the world telling me that I should write a piece for the unexpected transformation of 2020 concerning what the world is going through at this time, so I decided to write a hymn. One of my organist friends also recommended b minor so if he wanted to commission me to arrange it for organ and strings the key would already work very well. Thus this hymn was born. I decided to simply render the demo with strings for simplicity sake and did not use double basses due to the range of the human voice. The words come from the books of Job, Isaiah, and Psalms. Thank you for taking a look and listen.
