Comments for this piece:
From Marla Thomas: Now you need to submit this with this tune to it. It really sounds like it naturally belongs in the hymnal. (The only typo I see is in the chorus since there is a d typed at the end of minds.) Otherwise, perfect with this musical tune!
5.0 stars.

From Marla Thomas: There are a couple of more typos that I did not notice before. The ones I see now are: Verse 1: 1st row & 3rd measure = change "bur" to "but"; 2nd row & 2nd measure of that row = change "heard," to "heart,"; 3rd row & 4th measure of that row = change "mindsd" to "minds" and, finally, on the musical notes everytime I try to sing the 3rd row & 5th measure I have a difficult time with the "and" being included. Is there a way to change that music just right there for a smoother and clearer transition to the last row & 1st measure in the last row to get the words "That lion and lamb at the last may know" to be sung more articulately?
5.0 stars.

Song background:

Written in 2003 for a Hymn Text Search with a theme of "calling the church to seek for peace". It was not chosen. Sadly, with most Hymn Text Searches that I have ever entered, rarely is a text chosen that speaks of what "we" need to "do". I will continue to write about when "we" must "do" to bring about the Kingdom of God. Cydney Van Duker has written another wonferful piece of music; I am thrilled with the life she is giving to hymn texts that I would never think would have good music. Thank you, Cydney!
