New Songbook Songs for download at JW.org
WHY WHY WHY......the piano arrangement!!!!
I wanted to sing the production version of the songs 6 times a week
"ever loyal to their guidance
when our brothers take the lead
when they give us their direction
may our minds and heart give head"
Yet still no ebook downloads of their publications....
It is interesting the character of some of the misty-eyed new songs that speak of growing old, dying, or appreciating the patience of God in delaying the end. A bit difference than the older tunes that had the theocratic nation marching triumphant into the new system.
I also have a brief research question --
Can anyone recall which songs (if any) in the current (brown) song book mention the name of Jesus? The songs about Christ that I can recall, such as "Hail Jehovah's First Born", don't speak of the name of Jesus. Would be curious if the new book continues the trend of eliminating the name of Christ.
EDIT: In answer to my above question --
Here are some songs that mention the name Jesus in the old book, 134, 101, 139, 122, 115, 106, 22, 168, 147, 123. Without lookin at potential lyric changes the new book only retains 123 - "Move Ahead", which mentions Jesus in the verse, " There is a place in the service for all;
It is the work Jesus did, you'll recall."
EDIT: In answer to my above answer :-)
