about

A new tune written for one of John Newton's lesser-known hymns.

Lyrics:

O, speak that gracious word again,
And cheer my drooping heart!
No voice but thine can soothe my pain,
Or bid my fears depart.

O my Saviour, by his pow’rful word,
Has turned my night to day;
His salvation’s joys have now restored,
All I had sinned away,
All that I had sinned away.

Guilt made me fear, lest all were true
The lying tempter said!
But now the Lord appears in view,
My enemy is fled.

O my Saviour, by his pow’rful word,
Has turned my night to day;
His salvation’s joys have now restored,
All I had sinned away,
All that I had sinned away,
All that I had sinned away.

O my Saviour, by his pow’rful word,
Has turned my night to day;
His salvation’s joys have now restored,
All I had sinned away,
All that I had sinned away,
All that I had sinned away.

about

Trevor Skead Cape Town, South Africa

I am a songwriter and worship leader from Cape Town, South Africa. One of my great joys is discovering beautiful verses from almost forgotten hymns and writing new music for them. In giving these old words new melodies, I hope to play my part in preserving some of the Church's lyrical treasures and contributing to her songbook of the ages. ... more
