Update 10/1/20: Sheet music for this song can be downloaded here.
Two years after Naaman Wood and I began collaborating on “Restore Us, O God,” the song has finally been sung by an actual congregation. I think you’ll agree that it went swimmingly:
Of course, its success is due in part to the Church of the Servant Guitarchestra, which got its Klezmer on for this one. It’s also due to my congregation’s enthusiasm for singing. Listen to the way they dive right in when I invite them to sing.
All in all a successful debut of the Wood/Scheer writing team. What’s next, Naaman?
