Children's choirs are in truth an acquired taste but this is one you may well want to investigate. Keith and Kristyn deserve their international reputation as premier exponents of hymnody and here an above average children's ensemble recorded in Nashville offer charming renditions of songs ranging from the adult classic title track alongside shorter ones like "Hear The Call Of The Kingdom" (written in 2006 by the Gettys and Stuart Townend) and the stirring closer, penned with Nathan Nockels and Jonas Myrin, "The Lord Is My Salvation". Children singing such rich theology is truly moving and shows we don't have to dumb down our songs of faith when presenting them for children to sing.

Product Description
Engaging kids with songs to carry for life that share timeless truths with intentional artistry.

12 hymns old and new sung by kids for kids of all ages to sing along to!

Recorded with kid friendly arrangements by the Getty Band. What we learn to music, especially when we are children stays with us all our lives. Even when we are old, it will not depart from us. How important, then, to learn life principles from the Word of God by singing them into our very souls when we are children. This is one of the best gifts we can ever give a child. What a great resource is this new Getty hymnal and CD for our kids and grandkids! GLORIA GAITHER

It always makes me so happy whenever an artist writes for the most important, wonderful and discerning audience of all. The Gettys, our modern day hymn writers, have have turned their great gift to write an album of songs filled with robust theology, great music, anthemsall in the service of giving children hymns of their own. Wonderful, feet-stomping truth to sing! (I have a feeling, as with most great writing for children, the adults will want to sing along too.) SALLY LLOYD-JONES
