Short songs for worship (3)

The previous collections Come All You People and There is One Among Us have proved to be useful in English-speaking countries and several of the songs have been translated into other European languages.

People used to strophic hymns which represent theology in verse, and others more accustomed to the verse and chorus structure of many praise and worship songs, will find here something altogether different.

Some shorter songs bear continual repetition for meditation or as an accompaniment to liturgical action; some may be interspersed with prayer or scripture reading, some – like the Sanctus – have a particular place in the celebration of Holy Communion.

But all, being short, are memorable. They can link us to the greater universal church of which our own congregation is a part; they may provide for our memory words which are worth keeping inside us; and they may be the means whereby people who have never sung in harmony get a foot up that ladder.

A CD by the Wild Goose Collective containing a selection of the songs is also available.

1 review for WE WALK HIS WAY (BK)

  1. Riichard Adams

    I bought the “We Walk His Way” CD & music book, and it’s gone down a bomb in school assemblies here. Teachers tell me that they hear children humming ‘Come, bring your burdens to God’ in the corridors. Amazing! – RICHARD ADAMS, Vicar, Fence & Higham
