Hymn Note for "Come and Join the Celebration"
This new hymn was commissioned by Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church in memory and honor of Ann Gettys Nash and was sung for the first time in their worship service on April 18, 2010 in Asheville, North Carolina.
The gifted composer Hal Hopson has written the new music for this hymn titled "Ann's Tune." You can listen to an online recording of the hymn with this beautiful tune (4.1 megabyte MP3 file) from the April 18th worship service.
