Recorded at home in Atlanta on February 25, 2012.
I wrote Saint's Reward on the Friday morning before the 2008 Chattahoochee Convention in a hotel room en route to the singing in Staunton, VA.
Sung the next day at a composium organized by Aldo and me at Wilson's Chapel and at the 2009 Midwest Convention composium.
For ever blessed be the Lord,
Who gives his saints a long reward
For all their toil, reproach, and pain:
Let all below and all above
Join to proclaim thy wondrous love,
And each repeat their loud Amen.
