A mellow and simple, yet moving arrangement of the classic hymn, This Is My Father's world. Perfect for soloists and congregational singing.

This heartfelt spiritual about standing with God is presented here in a simple folk style with two acoustic guitars, upright bass, and drums. Adopted by the civil rights movement as "We Shall Not Be Moved", the melody now conjures images of standing against injustice.
Sometimes called "Up Over My Head", this simple, powerful gospel tune was made famous by Sister Rosetta Tharpe. During the civil rights era it became a protest song by substituting the words "freedom" and "justice" for "music". This traditional gospel arrangement featuring piano and church organ is perfect for a soloist, a choir, or both! Choirs behind a soloist can echo the first three lines of each verse immediately after the soloist for instant easy harmony, and sing the last line with the soloist in unison. Verse four goes up a whole step for dramatic effect, and slows down at the end for a big finish.
