Leaf and Blade

It was a very cold day in December 2018 and Pastor Edwar Dethan visited us briefly at home to teach me a song he had written and that he wanted some accompaniment for at his mission presentation slated later that week, here in Lincoln ON.

Coming in from Timor Indonesia and not being used to our climate he was still stiff and shivering as he quickly picked up a freezing borrowed guitar and could hardly play a note.

None the less he left us with a very wonderful little song based on Lord’s Day 10 from the Heidelberg Catechism that nearly anyone can learn to play.

Now as we live at a time when many are looking for things to teach or do with their stay at home children I thought this might be of interest to some.

For an interesting variation play the D and Em chords in the 5th and 7th position.

Now do you see ….how nothing comes by chance?
