New Song for June

This month we will be introducing a new song, with a traditional tune. The name of the song is Come Away from Rush and Hurry, and its set to the tune of Come thou Fount. I first heard it while I was down at the Global Church Advancement conference in January. Josh Bales was leading the singing down there and included this song.

We are introducing this song because so much of our modern life is a series of frantic moves from one thing to the next. Often there is no time to stop. We hope that as we sing this we are reminded that because of the greatness of God we can rest in him and trust that tomorrows worries can be dealt with tomorrow.

Here is a copy of the sheet music, for those musically gifted folks who can read such gobbledygook :)

We happen to have found a version of the song on youtube sung by Josh:
