Plenteous Grace

by Peter Nikiforuk

SATB with piano – KH 085 – duration 3:15
This canon is approachable in sweet-spot registers, fun to sing and very meaningful with a positive and encouraging message.
Jesus came that all men might
perfect be in God’s own sight.
Healer, preacher, teacher
He bought us for eternity.

Rejoice in the Lord

by Peter Nikiforuk

SATB with organ or piano – KH 088 – duration 1:55
Psalm 33 has been set to music by many fine composers and this one rises above. It is both a fanfare and a meditation – perfect as an introit or a benediction.
