What a lovely keyboard arrangement:

There is also a beautiful vocal rendition by Michael Crawford (the original Phantom of the Opera) worth hearing. Note: This is a Christian-themed song, so if that particular religion offends you, don't listen to the song:

Thank you for sharing these. I like them very much. A nice change from folk groups performing it in church (not that there's anything wrong with folk groups, they do fine).
I enjoy Michael Crawford's singing, too.

I've played this song at mass at many times. I usually arp the base and really try to bring out the melody as best I can.

...I thought Michael Joncas wrote the lyrics and music to this song. I saw him 13 years ago at a music ministry seminar in New York. I will always remember his "Number Next" saying when he meant "Lets go to the next piece". And he is a very good pianist as well \:\)
