About

"a Burt Bacharach-styled jazz ballad, performed to a blues tinged cafe piano with a pick of kiwi cliches as hymn words - a nice touch!" Extract from a review of a performance of this piece on the CD "Spirited People" by the Festival Singers of Wellington.

This is a contemporary folk hymn calling for us to allow God some space in our busy lives. Suitable for unison singing but also arranged for SATB. Simple piano can be elaborated. Other instruments e.g. guitar, bass, drums optional.
