God's Sufficient Word incipit

God’s Sufficient Word

Full page / Half page This new hymn tune was commissioned by my church, Community Baptist Church of Greer, SC, to celebrate their 30th anniversary as well as the 30th year of Pastor David Whitcomb’s ministry there. Chris Anderson wrote the text based on 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5, Pastor Whitcomb’s foundation passage for pastoral ministry. From […]


My Faith Has Found a Resting Place

Full sheet / Half sheet Here’s another new hymn tune I’ve been working on for the past few months. Growing up, we sang this text (to LANDÅS) in our church a lot (perhaps too much, if that’s possible). Such is the case that after a while, even the most familiar of hymns begin to lose their […]


There Is a Fountain

Full sheet / Half sheet It’s been over a year since I released a new hymn tune; I’ve had this one sitting on the back burner for quite a while. This is a new tune to accompany William Cowper’s text, “There Is a Fountain.” It’s based on a simple pentatonic melody I wrote several years ago […]


If You Will Only Let God Guide You

Full sheet / Half sheet This new tune for Georg Neumark’s wonderful old text was commissioned by my former church, First Baptist Church of Lebanon, PA, for their pastor’s retirement. George Mackey, for whom the tune is named, retired this month after 45 years of full-time ministry, including 15 years at FBC. The church desired […]


Great God of Wonders

Full sheet / Half sheet This new tune for Samuel Davies’ text was spurred on in part by my pastor’s recent sermon series in Titus, particularly chapter 3. “But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to […]


Sweet Hour of Prayer

Full sheet / Half sheet This is a new tune to a familiar text. I actually wrote this my sophomore year of college and forgot about it until recently. You never know what you’ll find when you start rummaging through boxes and binders of old stuff. Anyways, I figured it’s time to dust it off […]


In Heaven Above

Full sheet / Half sheet As Christians, we often wonder what heaven will be like exactly. The occasion of a loved one passing away often causes us to speculate about what they’re experiencing in their new “home” and in their immortal bodies. This text, originally written by Laurentius Laurinus in 1622, does a great job of emphasizing […]


Jesus Lives and So Shall I

Full sheet / Half sheet In celebration of Reformation Day 2009 and the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin, I am releasing a new hymn setting that I composed this month. The text is an 18th c. poem by Christian F. Gellert entitled Jesus Lives and So Shall I. I decided to put […]
