Most people want to sing and can, but are usually frustrated due to pressures of technical music expectations. This book will help create an atmosphere of freedom for the individual alone or in a group where the person can get beyond the first line of a song, where the lyrics are seen as a total whole in context without the interference of notes. Since 85% of the population cannot read notes, this is primarily a lyric songbook for group singings. With no notes we are saying: Just let go and sing. You don't have to be technical. Now you have a chance to look at the lyrics instead of trying to look back and forth between lyrics and notes. Get the flavor. Group singing increases nearly 70% where there are no notes and the tune is not played. This songbook tries to reflect all of life under God; therefore, all kinds of music about life are included, since God's creative acts shine on everyone, whether they know it or not. Hymns, folk songs, current popular, and oldies are all mixed together and are deliberately kept out of fixed categories to give more of a feel of life in its wholeness. From Young Life, Campus Life type club meetings and cursillo retreats, to worship groups, whether on the beach, in the mountains, in the inner city buildings or sprawling suburbs, it is hoped that you will enjoy this personal book of expressions. Sing a new song of life, faith, joy, sorrow, and hope that it is your very own. Music comes from God and God lives in the heart, therefore express your heart through singing. Yohann Anderson.
