John L. Bell

Songs for the seasons of love

An eclectic collection of words & music from different ages, fused in contemporary arrangements. The seventeen songs include exclamations of praise, meditative reflections on the love of God, laments for the loss of a child and for countries at war. These are songs of engagement with life and with God, all grounded in the passion and pain of Christian love. Includes Were I the perfect child of God and The mind of God.

A CD of all the songs in the book by the Wild Goose Collective & Macappella is also available. Both groups are comprised of ex-WGWG members and associates of the WGRG.

The Lord is my light
How can I keep from singing
The treasure
Were I the perfect child
I will give what I have
I will sing a song of love
He is the Way
Jesus Christ, here among us
A cradling song
In this darkness
If the war goes on
I heard the voice of Jesus say
Hey my love
I am the Vine
O Jesus, sweet the thought of you
The mind of God



3 reviews for I WILL NOT SING ALONE (BK)

  1. Kay Griffiths

    “Those who want to find evidence of overt left-wing politics, whether to applaud or condemn, will doubtless do so; but I found only Biblical witness in modern dress.” – KAY GRIFFITHS (in THE HYMN SOCIETY BULLETIN)

  2. Peter Dilley

    “Astonishingly diverse culturally, the music literally spans the four corners of the globe… beautiful to listen to as (it is) challenging in content. Prophetically distinctive…” – PETER DILLEY (in NEW CHRISTIAN HERALD)

  3. M. Milner Siefert

    When I come across a collection by John Bell, I usually find several things that will be useful to my ministry. I often find things which help me find words to address difficult situations or ideas. I also sometimes find words and music which move me deeply. In I WILL NOT SING ALONE, I find them all. I commend this collection to pastors, ministers of music, and all who sing the songs of faith.” – M.MILNER SIEFERT (in THE HYMN)
