The Things We Invest In Jesus (vocal solo w/accomp.)

A slow, contemplative, contemporary treatment of I Peter 1:23-25 that emphasizes the temporary nature of the work of man, and the eternal nature of the Word of God. Vocal range is moderate, D to E a ninth above.

+++

The work of man is like the flowers in a field,
Pleasing for a season then to winter winds they yield.
Lovely fragrance giving way to a crumbling dusty end,
Blown away by winter winds and then starting out again.

But the word of the Lord stands forever,
It will never pass away.
And the things we invest in Jesus will stand beyond today.

Three score and ten is like a second in His sight.
We may be magnificent, blooming full and bright,
But when the winter winds come by to blow the dust away,
All we have accomplished will perish on that day.

But the word of the Lord stands forever,
It will never pass away.
And the things we invest in Jesus will stand beyond today.

The natural man is born of seed that will perish in the fall,
But the one who's born of water and the word comes through it all.

For the word of the Lord stands forever,
It will never pass away.
And the things we invest in Jesus will stand beyond today.

Yes the things we invest in Jesus will stand beyond today.

Includes a score with written piano part, a guitar chord chart with vocal line, and an optional oboe part that could also be played by flute or violin. MP3 sound sample: entire piece (synthesizer/midi).

WE SEEK RECORDINGS TO USE AS DEMOS
The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.

BLANKET RECORDING POLICY FOR SHEET MUSIC
Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than www.tributek.com to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as www.tributek.com, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.

A customer commented: "Today I made my first purchase from Tributek. Every aspect of the transaction exceeded my expectations. The description of the product included a Quicktime demo in addition to a clear, interesting, well-written description of the product. The price of the product was a bargain. The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"

Another customer commented: "I would like to compliment you on the ease of purchasing music on-line. I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."

Another customer writes: "I bought some choral music off your site. It's great. I hope we can do all of it in our church. I don't know how you can sell it so cheap. It's a great service you offer."
