A shelter in the time of storm

 

Again, trying to explore new ways of communicating the rich messages of old hymns, the idea of this arrangement is to express a storm, and the shelter that Jesus is in the middle of one. In the first chorus, the violin sustains the last note, to represent the shelter; the guitars underneath represent the storm.  It builds from there, and includes a very brief reference to what Fred Hammond once did with “shelter” in the song “Dwell”.
