Man of Sorrows

Bandmaster Jim Black was requested to provide a musical treatment of the old hymn "Man of Sorrows". The composition heard here tries to capture the depth of the loneliness and rejection our Savior must have felt on our behalf. However, being Easter the last verse triumphantly echoes the words:

"When He comes our glorious King
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew this song we'll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!"

The piece begins and ends with a quote from "Maccabeus" - "Thine is the glory, risen, conquering Son!"

[Note: unfortunately, since our recording levels were set for vocals, much of the band volume "overpowers" the recording leading to some distortion! Still, we hope you get a feel for our Easter worship!]

More to learn

David Prince brings us a cornet solo which combines two songs about expanding our knowledge of Jesus. Recorded live in our worship service on Sunday March 17th 2013.

The first song is "All that you need is a miracle" (Gowans/Larson)

All that you need is a miracle,
And all that you need can be yours,
All that you need is available
The moment you turn to the Lord.

The second is a well-known American Hymn "More about Jesus" (words by Eliza Hewitt)

More about Jesus would I know,
More of His grace to others show;
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love Who died for me.

More, more about Jesus,
More, more about Jesus;
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love Who died for me.


More about Jesus let me learn,
More of His holy will discern;
Spirit of God, my teacher be,
Showing the things of Christ to me.

More, more about Jesus,
More, more about Jesus;
More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love Who died for me.

Saviour like a shepherd lead us

A thoughtful setting of an old and much-loved hymn. Recorded live in our worship service Sunday March 10th, 2013.

Savior, like a shepherd lead us, much we need Thy tender care; In Thy pleasant pastures feed us, for our use Thy folds prepare. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast bought us, Thine we are. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.


We are Thine, Thou dost befriend us, be the guardian of our way; Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us, seek us when we go astray. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Hear, O hear us when we pray. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Hear, O hear us when we pray.


Thou hast promised to receive us, poor and sinful though we be; Thou hast mercy to relieve us, grace to cleanse and power to free. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! We will early turn to Thee. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! We will early turn to Thee.


Early let us seek Thy favor, early let us do Thy will; Blessèd Lord and only Savior, with Thy love our bosoms fill. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast loved us, love us still. Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus! Thou hast loved us, love us still.
