Last Sunday, I taught "Bless the Lord (Calypso)"...
to our youth fellowship and they
broke into laughter the way it is sung. 
It was a real fun in the Lord. 
(Daniel, from India)


What a joy it is to serve the Lord this morning 
as we worship Him with several of your songs. 

"Now Our God"  ... "Thine, O Lord" ...
"In The Splendor Of Your Courts"
  and our favorite 
greeting song (everybody goes around for a good 
five minutes to greet each other)
"Bless The Lord (Calypso)"
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your ministry.

(Linda in New Hampshire)


First sung publicly at the Seventh Day Adventist church (Hudson MA),
when New Hope Chapel was using their facilities,
and very well received by the saints that morning.

Among those who have sung this song are a kids group in Texas 
and an "alternative Salvation Army Band"
in upstate New York !!

I just started using your songs on my Website: 

1. How  Awesome Is This Place
2. Bless The Lord (Calypso)

3. Bringing The Presence Of Jesus.

I would like to request permission to use the following songs for a Music in Religion Day
to be held at the Anglican Church of St. Stephen in Toronto, Canada. 
These special Days are held every year,
where choir directors introduce new music to congregations.

I am the organist/choir director at the church,
and I had heard the music when I attended a Christian concert last year. 
The pieces are:    "In The Splendor of Your Courts",
"Bless the Lord (Calypso)" and "Oh The Wondrous Cross"

(Arlene, from Canada)


I am Children's Ministries Director at Longview Community Church - 
Our child will be singing "Bless The Lord (Calypso)" in our Worship Service...  
what a fun song 
(Lisa, from Washington) 


It has also been sung by soldiers at
worship services in Kuwait & Iraq
