This first attempt to write a song was before attending the singing school at ACU. I had sung in several small groups in the past, and had been to the Foundation School of Music in the 1980's, but I had never seriously tried to write music before. I attempted to take the thoughts to one of the Psalms, Psalm 18, and put it to music. We sang this in Sunday morning worship during one of my sermons on the Psalms. At the time, I didn't know anything about music notation software, so the original of this song was handwritten. A year later, I transcribed into music notation software and this printed song is the result.
