This eco-anthem works well for group singing or a solo voice. The traditional hymn style melody was intended to have a more contemporary feel, not too somber, with steady folk/rock rhythm. The long phrases can be a challenge to maintain the meaning of the words as all in one sentence so don’t get too slow. Several arrangements – SAA, SATB or solo with SATB – are available from Jim Scott.

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.
Everyone Is Welcome Here – Jim’s new collection of 7 songs that celebrate the 7 Principles of the Unitarian Universalist Church. Commissioned by the UU Church of Kinston NC, the songs can be sung by a children’s choir or lead by a song-leader – all unison except for the title song that has a counter line. Six of the seven have sing-along choruses and the set comes with a handout for singing along. The songs are arranged with piano accompaniment and chord symbols for improvising players.
