Shall Be Called
a simple, Scripture-based Christmas carol
being sung by many churches, choirs & children around the world
Read Testimonies of some who used "He Shall Be Called"
I am ... a Music Teacher in St. Francis Anglo Indian Girls High School in Coimbatore. I decided to teach "He Shall Be Called" and "You Gave Us Hope" to our school children for Christmas Carol 2007. As we began our practices, our children were moved by the Spirit of the Lord and they told me that they felt peace, joy and happiness. It is truly uplifting music and an inspiration from the Holy Ghost to you. God wants you to be an instrument in His hands to do this marvelous work to build His kingdom here on this earth. (Charles, from India)
Baby Of Bethlehem
A Christmas Hymn!
Check out the new arrangements :)
I have been blessed. I
found "The Baby Of Bethlehem" and
thought that was sooooo beautiful!
I had to pleasure to play "The Baby Of Bethlehem" for a church in a
county North of me and the church paid me a good amount...
I donated it right back to the church. I play flute and... am starting a lot of
professional performance in churches... Keep up the great work.
The music is AWESOME! (email from Lisa)
Gave Us Hope
A song for Advent
Hello, I am the
eighth grade teacher at Holy Spirit School....
I have the dubious honor of organizing the Christmas program for
our school. I was at my end trying to find a song appropriate for my class to sing
when I happened upon your web site and the beautiful song,
"You Gave Us Hope." Thank you and God Bless you. We will sing it on December 14
at our program in praise of Jesus and in thanksgiving for you and your great gift.
(Anne, from California)
Jesus Was Born In Bethlehem
in the style of "The Twelve Days Of Christmas"
listening to SATB arrangement from your site, I selected
two of your beautiful Carols "He Shall Be Called" &
"The Baby Of Bethlehem" and presented by my Choir
during the Christmas programmes in December 2003
and 2004. These were the best enjoyed among the seventeen carols
we presented. The tune and arrangement were indeed
exceptional and the effort is really commendable.
God bless you and let you create more such carols
to enable attracting many souls to His Kingdom.
(K.M.Thomas, Choir Director, CNI Immanuel Church, Mayur Vihar, New Delhi, India)

you for the "He Shall Be Called"
Our choir at St Luke United Methodist Church sang it
the first Sunday in Advent for our anthem.
The congregation liked it so well, I decided for us to sing it (1st verse)
as a Call to Worship, which we are doing every Sunday
for the Advent season. We have a young man who plays the guitar
along with the piano. The congregation loves to sing it!
Attached is a picture of our choir singing the song on November 27, 2005.

the Tablo, different Sunday Schools sang songs. We sang
"Have You Ever Heard...?" and explained that Jesus was born
among animals and now animals praise the Lord. It was the first time
in Pakistan we sang the song to a gathering of good and educated people.
They liked it very much (Samson, from Pakistan)
