a new song!

Hello friends. It has been far too long since I’ve posted something. My church, Hope Chapel moved into a new facility at the end of 2011 and it consumed most of my fall and winter. I have missed the creative outlet that hymnwriting provides and I’m looking forward to jumping back in soon.

For now, I do have one new song for you (although it’s actually been out on the internets for a few months). I was glad to contribute something to a compilation project called ‘Songs for the Supper’, organized by Cardiphonia. The album consists of 30 songs from writers all over, all around the theme of the Lord’s Supper. It’s really quite fantastic. I contributed one called “Thee, King of Saints We Praise’. Hope you enjoy.

Thee, King of Saints, We Praise (Text: Charles Wesley, 1859; Music & Add. lyrics: Michael Van Patter, 2012)

(recording | lead sheet)

THEE, King of Saints, we praise,
For this our Living Bread;
Sustained by Thy grace,
Sustained by Thy grace,
Sustained by Thy grace
And at Thy Table fed ;

We we in lower parts
Of Thy great kingdom feast,
We feel in our hearts,
We feel in our hearts,
We feel in our hearts
The promise of Thy rest.

Yet still a higher seat
We in Thy kingdom claim,
And begin by faith to eat,
Begin by faith to eat,
Begin by faith to eat
The Supper of the Lamb.
