Songs to sing
New songs and hymns
What gift for the infant Christ?
Carol for a hard winter
Clothe the body in the
rainbow robes of joy
Go, so my parables live
Here to celebrate
I sing the grace of God within you,
It all depends
Let there be respect for the earth
Lord Jesus, look on this we do
Lord, pull the stopper
Lord, turn our grieving into
Love is a miracle
May the anger of Christ be mine
Nothing is lost on the breath of God
There's a wideness in God's mercy
Voices of the earth
We are many, we are one
We would be yes-sayers
When angels rove the restless skies

New Zealand is fortunate to possess a community of lively and skilled
hymn writers and composers. Eminent among these is Professor Colin
Gibson (professor of English at Otago University) who is organist and
choirmaster of our Mornington congregation, and who composed most
of the hymns presented here.
Collections of Colin's hymns and songs have been published in
Britain and in the United States.
He is a major contributor to three compilations produced by the New Zealand Hymn Book Trust.
