Description:

Informed and inspired by such seasoned text writers as Daw, Dufner, Bringle, Bell, Troeger, and Kaan, Adam Tice brilliantly engages the reader, singer, or composer using words that are sincere, perceptive, and comforting—words that express a faith that is firmly grounded in scriptural wisdom and yet is significantly influenced by the modern challenges of today’s world. With exquisite talent and creativity he offers this testament of conversion, conviction, and evangelization. Through these texts Tice is “showing us new ways to behold and celebrate God’s presence and purposes” (Carl P. Daw Jr.).


Tice is one of the most exciting hymn text authors writing today.


Contributors of great new tunes to this collection include Tony Alonso, John L. Bell, David Haas, Daniel Kantor, Ronald F. Krisman, Sally Ann Morris, and more.

An Open Hand, a Willing Heart


Meter: 8 7 7 7


An open hand, a willing heart, a gentle word, a challenge—


Spirit, breathe into this church, the risen body of Christ.


A stirring call, a narrow road, a living dream, a promise—


Spirit, breathe into this church, the risen body of Christ.


All worlds reborn,
all deaths undone,


all things in God united— Spirit, breathe into this church,


the risen body of Christ.
