Reviews - What do customers think about Come Away with Me: A Collection of Original Hymns?
socially aware, inclusive, and sensitive to spiritual needs Feb 3, 1998
"Come Away With Me" has lyrics with striking language that tugs at the mind as well as at the heart. The lyrics to "As Rachel Mourned her Children will not leave a dry eye as it explores the reasons why humanity tolerates child abuse. Another text speaks of Jesus who asks us to be not slaves or servants but a friend. Text after text reveals thoughtful and timely words relating our lives to Christian spirituality. Another gift of this volume is the music. John Horman, the composer of the tunes, has found singable and memorable music. Yet they have a modern sound with a hint of jazz chords. I really enjoyed reading and singing through this collection and look forward to bringing these to life at First Presbyterian Church in Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
