A song about human connections, this has a gospel style chorus that can be repeated and built up to a big climax. The refrain: “Let all our hearts open wide, Feeling the spirit deep inside, And from within, shine your light, Bright as the day through the darkest night. Chord changes for optional rhythm section.
In a somewhat traditional carol style this is a song for the Christmas season and carries a message of rebirth and hope. The birth of a child in the dark of winter is something we all can get excited about, makes us all feel like a family and gives us faith in the future.

A spiritual album that appeals to non-“religious” listeners. The singer-songwriter-guitarist’s songs get the full choral treatment with creative arrangements. A poignant philosophy of ecology, peace and healing emerge from thoughtful lyrics. Some of Jim’s most loved hymns, anthems and songs of a more meditative quality are recorded here with Matt Johnsen and the MSTG Choir. Jim calls this collection his “spiritual philosophy in song,” with six of his songs that are included in the UU Hymnbooks. They range from a capella to gospel and contemporary styles. Jim sings a solo part of most of the songs and accompanies on guitar with piano, bass and drums rhythm section on some. The “Master Singers to Go” (MSTG) is a 16 member ensemble of singers who are part of the larger Master Singers of Worcester MA.
All the choir arrangements on the CD are available, some both as SATB with solo and for SATB choir alone.
