Reviewed by Heather Richardson

Music score with large print copy of words at the back for transferring on to acetate. The songs are all written by Richard Lewis who may be best known for being the musical director of Kensington Temple and who now runs World Wide Worship for Kevin Mayhew. Songs in the book include "You Are The Lord Of Heaven" and "I Will Awaken The Dawn". The songs are taken from the live albums 'Latter Rain' and 'Send Revival' on which Richard Lewis features as the worship leader. There are also songs from the studio album 'When I Pray'. The musical script is written simply with a basic harmony accompaniment. I was pleasantly surprised that I could play the songs, especially as I had not heard any of the albums and was not familiar with any of the songs. I thoroughly enjoyed the songs, found the tunes easy to sing with excellent lyrics and could certainly be used for group worship. The guitar chords were straightforward with all songs written in playable keys. I would have liked there to be Scripture references where applicable to support the songs. This resource will be useful to those who wish to have a written copy of these songs or who would like to have some new songs to dip into.
