In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free,
While God is marching on!

Standing Together in 2010

Here's a New Year's treat for everyone: the marvelous old Ben E. King tune Stand by Me as performed by a host of the best artists from around the world--literally--that you never heard of, until now. If only all of humanity could be brought together for good, this simply and joyfully (it will be, in the Lord's good time). For now, let's just revel in the wonderful spirit that this performance inspires! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

This video, and several others I haven't watched yet, were produced by an organization called Playing For Change. Here's their web site:

You probably have a pretty good guitar teacher living right there in your house!
