HERE I AM, LORD: 30TH ADDITION
by Dan Schutte
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the beloved song "Here I Am, Lord," OCP was pleased to publish a special re-release of the popular 15-year anthology of songs dating from 1970-1985. Here I Am, Lord, 30th Anniversary Edition includes a fresh new recording of the title song with the previously unrecorded second verse.
The entire remastered anthology contains Dan Schutte's most popular liturgical compositions from his time as a member of the St. Louis Jesuits. The 16 songs in this collection were chosen from The Steadfast Love, Lord of Light, Earthen Vessels, Gentle Night, A Dwelling Place and others.
Dan Schutte's huge impact on Catholic liturgy since the 1970s is unmistakable. Successful hits like "City of God," "Sing a New Song" and "Here I Am, Lord" elicit immediate recognition from an entire generation of American Catholics, has become a common repertoire for worship throughout the world.
Indeed, to sing Dan Schutte's lyrics is to sing scripture. Beautiful scripturally based songs like "Only This I Want" give way to singable tunes like "Send Us Your Spirit." The album moves gracefully from energetic, upbeat music to gentle, prayerful melodies.
With gorgeous new cover art and a story from Dan himself about the process of writing "Here I Am Lord," this compilation will inspire and delight a whole new generation.
