A wonderful song based on Philipians 1: 3-5. Originally for piano and choir, this is my orchestration of David Scwoebel’s piece. Used with his permission.
It is performed by Stonebriar Community Church choir and orchestra. Misty Miller conducts.
Expression of Gratitude – David Schwoebel
Orchestrated by Paul Thompson
‘A Diamond Choir of hand-picked young singers had a starring role at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee National Service of Thanksgiving on 5 June 2012.
The 41 boys and girls in the choir were chosen from more than 1,000 10 to 13-year-olds who applied and 400 who auditioned at cathedrals. At St Paul’s Cathedral the Diamond Choir stood alongside the residential choristers and the Chapel Royal from St James’s Palace — the first time that girl choristers have sung with the full-time boys of St Paul’s as their equals.’
Words: Michael Hampel (b.1967) Music: Will Todd (b.1970) based on Proverbs 8. 1-17
Though the trials come, though the road seems long, it is in the valley His arms are strong. When we lean on Jesus in all that we do, His grace will lead us through! Chorus His grace is sufficient; He’s merciful and true. Till all have heard, we will stand on His Word! His grace will lead us through.
Come with grateful hearts to the throne of grace and see our Savior face to face! Our help through the ages; our hope to come; His grace will lead us through. Chorus
Grace, grace, God’s grace, grace that will pardon and cleanse within; O grace, grace, God’s grace, grace that is greater than all our sin. Till all have heard, we will stand on His Word! His grace will lead us through.
