If you read our editor’s review in CR75 of 'No Music Group? No Problem', you will know what to expect. A CD containing instrumentals of well known hymns and songs - this time aimed at children - from the same source. It contains tracks such as “Give Me Joy In My Heart”, “He's Got The Whole World In His Hands” and “My God Is So Big” amongst others. Aimed at schools and Sunday schools who have no instruments (I assume), it does what the title says. The instrumentation is fairly basic and mostly programmed but given the poor quality of many school “music systems”, an uncomplicated sound is probably best! A gripe would be the lack of detail on copyright restrictions (eg, can I copy the lyrics in the booklet?) apart from a website address - great if you have a computer - and there are no musician details. As you know we reviewers strive to provide the most accurate reviews we can for the readers, so I formed my own Juke Box Jury to test the appeal of the disc... Ben (age 8) and Hannah (age 6) were “invited” to listen by dad! The result... both children were singing the songs almost from the first note. What more can I say?

I purchased "This Little Light of Mine" from Just Instrumental Hymns and Songs for Children 1 but I need the lyrics that go with the music. The lyrics I have do not go with instrumental version that I purchased. Please advise.
