This solo is about overflowing with thanks toward God, and the urge to express it more often. It can be used as a general solo, for Thanksgiving services, or with the Gospel lesson of The Ten Lepers, which comes up in October of Year C in the Revised Common Lectionary.
This is a solo for mezzo-soprano or alto
voice and piano, with our own tune.
However, you can also pair a related version of these words (click here) to the tune Londonderry Air/"Danny Boy"—which is easier to remember, just harder to sing! You can find existing music, even guitar chords, for Londonderry Air/"Danny Boy" in hymnals or online. With this alternative, other voices could sing the song.
