Uses: General, Concert, Contest
Scripture: Philippians 3:20-21
Expressive melodic lines and phrases lend a sense of yearning and melancholy to the unwavering hope and peace found in the text of this folk melody. Aaron McDermid has arranged “Come Sing to Me of Heaven” with broad, open chords and tightly-woven suspensions. The slow, mournful opening gives way to a faster, contrasting middle section as the anticipation and hope of heaven builds. This moving contemplation of death and heaven is also a song of comfort, an emotional offering for concert or contest.
