Come Away with Me

From the publisher: "Covering a variety of subjects, these 16 original hymns are perfect for use in worship and other settings. Come Away With Me is a collection of sixteen original hymns (both texts and tunes are original) on a variety of subjects. Each hymn is presented as poetry (without music), set as a congregational hymn (text interlined within the music), and is given brief background information. The ideas in the texts [written by Mary Nelson Keithahn] are rich theologically, yet easily comprehended, use totally inclusive language, and are set as artistically beautiful poetry in standard metrical schemes (common meter, long meter, 66.86, and so forth). The hymn tunes [composed by John D. Horman] are written in well-crafted, imaginative, memorable, traditional (as opposed to pop) styles, and set in classic hymn format (melody as the uppermost note in the right hand of the accompaniment)."
