This is the third collection of hymn-texts from Christopher Idle, completing a series begun with Light upon the River (1998) and continuing in Walking by the River (2008), each book marking a significant birthday.
As before, the hymns are arranged in Bible order, with some added extras. Background notes, suggestions for tunes and full indexes are provided. The hymns are offered for congregations to sing in praise of God and encouragement of one another; a few are tailored to special places and events, and some are written for children and road-tested by them.
Chris's total output now approaches five hundred items written over 53 years; they appear in over three hundred hymn and songbooks, recordings and other publications worldwide.
