At last! The long-awaited songbook with 60 songs in eight languages from this unique multi-racial, multi-denominational praise and worship group in available. Vinesong has prepared a feast: old favourites "Peace Like A River", "Living Water and "I Worship You", the lovely renderings of Psalm 23 and Isaiah 61 and heartfelt worship songs "We Honour Your Presence" and "My Everything". Composer John Watson admits that he is only a channel for God's purpose - he has been given these songs for the Church. The book is dedicated to the ministry of his missionary parents, Doc and Ann Watson. A brief history of Vinesong, a profile of John Watson and notes on team members will delight all who have come to know and love Vinesong's ministry since its inception in 1982. Worship teams keen to expand their repertoires will find this a useful resource with its spiral binding, alphabetical arrangements and inclusion of guitar chords. Says John Watson, "My prayer is that these songs will lift you from glory to glory and inspire you to a deeper relationship - not only with the Father and his son Jesus, but also to discover the Holy Spirit as an intimate friend, helper and comforter."

I recall your visit to Central Otago now some years ago (around 12?)- the time since has moved along quickly but I still follow with interest your world journey. The music book and 2 CD's that I purchased at the Cromwell,Wanaka and Alexandra venues are still regularly played and recently I received great comfort from playing the CD's during the recent hospital stay I had - Vinesong were great in the wee small hours.Would be a blessing to our country should you have a return visit sometime soon !!!! Have you produced the sheet music for the song "How Majestic are you Lord" ? This had such an amazing impact when sung in the open air presentation in Alexandra.
