7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
"Not one hymn is trite, or treats a conventional subject in polite language. Each tune and text speaks to the mind and heart - and most surely to the human voices who will want to sing them all." From the foreword by Alice Parker
This collection of 16 hymns demonstrates a collaboration that has stretched over many years, not only as text writer and tune writer, but also as pastor and parishioner, and as friend and friend. Each hymn is set both as poetry and interlined with music. Unison hymns are also set in tune-line only format appropriate for bulletin inserts.
Churches purchasing ten or more copies of this collection are granted permission to use the hymns contained within it in the following ways:
