Product Description

David Hepburn is a retired minister-of-music, choir director, band director, missionary, teacher, and school president, and a fine tenor and trumpeter. His many compositions are a testament to the works of Jesus he has seen in the lives of others and in his own life.

This is a pure vocal solo in David's southern-gospel-influenced style, that has a bit of art song thrown in when the time signature and mood changes. A very interesting and beautiful song for baritone/tenor or soprano.

I'm so glad to know that Jesus really loves me!
I'm so glad He's taken all my sins away.
So many years I wandered aimlessly in darkness
Hoping that somehow the night would turn to day.
There are so many roads that lead us nowhere,
So many people who don't seem to care,
So many heartaches we're all called to bear,
Then Jesus lifts me from despair.
Jesus says, "I am the way and I've come to lead you home."
Jesus says, "I am the truth and I've come to set you free."
Jesus says, "I am the life, and I'll span eternity,"
"Those who come to the Father come by Me."
I'm so glad to know that Jesus really loves me!
I'm so glad He knows the road to lead me home!
