Update 3/22/22: Sheet music for this song is now available at gregscheer.com.
Our fourth course, a dessert of dismissal and dejection, is a tune for Stephen Starke’s text, “Jesus, Greatest at the Table.” This 188.8.131.52.8.7 Maundy Thursday text was the last one of the batch I wrote, and at first I felt it was the weakest. It sounded too similar to a tune in Sing! A New Creation (I’ll never tell which one) and just wasn’t grabbing me. But this is was a situation in which experience and perseverance outweighed youthful enthusiasm and raw talent. I kept fussing with the draft over the course of a few days and now, though perhaps not the most beautiful belle at the ball, it is quite a pleasant, singable tune.
Pleasant and singable, or just a really nice personality? You be the beholder: MP3.
