Some Golden Daybreak

We got another set of music scores finished this week! It is the music Glenda Macomber wrote for Some Golden Daybreak for Violin and Piano. It is very energetic and moving! The kind of music that brings God’s people to their feet in praise of God.

We have included a synthesized reproduction of the combined scores so that the user can see what they sound like when a machine plays them. Of course, with a human playing them, there is a much better sound!

The cover is a photo of the Sea of Galilee in Israel, and the inside a little comment about the photo and today.

To see the prepared scores, use the following link:

Arthur Luther additions!

Wow! We are so thankful to God and Arthur Luther’s daughter for the opportunity to share these unusual items.

First off, we have gotten the article he wrote called “Cave Men Stuff” so that it is available with a redrawn graphic. You can see this at the following link:

Cave Men and stuff by Arthur Luther

Second, we have just finished processing and setting up eight of the songs he sang with his wife while playing his organ. To be able to hear this blessing of hearing a hymn writer sing hymns, click the following link:

Arthur and Irene Luther sing hymns

A media player has been added to the Jesus Never Fails page that has Arthur Luther singing the hymn with his organ. Use the following link to see this page and hear the music!

Jesus Never Fails by Arthur Luther

There are still several more items to add to this hymn writer from his daughter, so we hope we can get them processed soon!

Blessed Be the Name

Wow! I worked on this piece myself, redoing the notation work, and was it a job! But I did learn a lot about how to do it. Over the years I had keyed several hymns, and a few anthems in various programs, but I guess I forget more than I remember.

At any rate, this is a very beautiful piece for the piano and violin. It is not for the beginner pianist! But when mastered it is the most beautiful I have ever heard. It would be great if we could add sound files, so people can hear it, including those that cannot play it!

The cover has a photo of the Jerusalem, and it does not have that ugly mosque at the forefront! So it is a very beautiful photograph. The inside of the cover is about the name of God and what it means when it is the blessed Name!

The music is available as the second piece listed on link to the page below:

Blessed Be the Name for Violin and Piano.

My Anchor Holds

My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness! What a statement! The photo that graces the cover of this piece is of an old ship that used to sail on the Galilee Lake. This age old lake is much smaller than it used to be, but still a wonderful lake.

The back side of the cover is about the importance of a strong anchor to help us stay in place in the many storms of life that come our way as a child of God.

To find out about the fellow that wrote the music, use this link to his story on our Hymn Stories section of another website we have:

The Lord Is My Shepherd

This is the old “Scottish Psalter” words that have been sung for hundreds of years. The words are timeless and have been precious to God’s people year after year, and generation after generation, all over the world! You simply cannot improve on them.

The photo on the cover is of the Jordan River, and after having seen many photos of the Jordan from people who had visited as well as professional photographs, this photos is the best! The Jordan is controlled by a dam, so it does not overflow its banks as in the Bible days, nor does it act as it used to, instead it just is a small stream that flows year round. The problem is most people think that this small stream was what it has always been. Water is a very precious commodity and not the plenteous thing it used to be in Israel. Things have been bad in Israel after the Romans salted the land and the Arabs then came through and plundered and destroyed it. Praise God there are people that love the Land! Praise God there are Jewish people that are willing to return to their land and actually take care of it and try to protect it from the constant and persistent Arab vandals.

But this piece is about how God shepherds His people in the presence of the enemies of the sheep, who are also enemies of God. It is simply beautiful.

The hymn is for violin and piano.

I Gave My Life for Thee arrangement

We are happy to announce there is another hymn arrangement for violin and piano! This is a beautiful hymn with a powerful statement, of how Christ Jesus gave up His own human life to pay the penalty for our sin. The question is, “What have you given up for Me?” and it is a very potent question! What do American Christians “give up” to prove their allegiance to their Savior and God?

When people go to church they have to be “comfortable” and refuse to hear anything that might sound “preachy” or from God’s Holy Word. They want to be entertained. Is this the house of God or a theater or show? God’s House is to be about God, not us.

Many a church has met in the most adverse conditions throughout history; meeting in chicken coups, outdoors in very adverse weather while hiding in wooded areas, outside public jails with the town officers riding their horses through the huge crowds to injure people, etc. What have we done that proves we are sincere about our faith and loyalty? Stayed home because we were busy, had friends, or just did not feel like going to church? What a shame!

Enjoy this great hymn and its message!

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

God is faithful, and defines faithfulness. Mankind defines unfaithfulness. People are so unfaithful to God, to their spouses, to their jobs, to their responsibilities, to their children, to their families, to their church, and even to themselves! Man is unfaithful and untrustworthy, but God is faithful.

This hymn talks about the incredible wonder of having a personally faithful and loving God. While the gods of this world (Allah, Buddha, Krishna, Isis, Ra, earth spirit, etc.) are all cruel and mean, God is there faithfully ready to work with us all the time. In fact he puts His spirit into His committed followers.

This great piece has been arranged by Glenda Macomber to portray the beauty of this time tested hymn, and with the violin it is simply splendid and incredible. We are offering it freely for now, but remember this all comes at a great cost to those that do not much with which to pay to keep this offer open. If you can help us, please do!

Elisha Hoffman

Well, we just rewrote another set of articles and got them uploaded. We had some delays, since our website hosting company moved our server to another facility at the same time! But it looks like the big move is over, and our pages are now displaying again, just a lot faster than before!

Elisha Hoffman was quite a guy, and we hope we added a bit more detail than most have found. We also redid the graphic so that it is a bit more friendly to the eyes than before.

Along with him, was a couple hymns and their story. To see the new pages, use the following links:

Beneath the Cross hymn story

We have just finished a rewrite of the hymn story we have had: “Beneath the Cross of Jesus.” This is a beautiful hymn written by Elizabeth Clephane and the music for it was written by Frederick C. Maker. To fit our latest format, the hymn story was broken up into three articles and they have all been re-researched and expanded.
