A celebration of the gifts God pours down upon us, this collection invites everyone to discover a more vibrant life of faith and prayer.
12 of his most recent compositions
Gathering 12 of his most recent compositions, God's Holy Gifts supports both communal worship and personal prayer. Covering a variety of themes and seasons, the songs include upbeat, contemporary songs, more contemplative works and grand, traditional hymns with pipe organ. Accompaniment varies from piano and strings to woodwinds and choir.
Gathering songs, Marian hymns
The title song encourages us to approach the banquet table of the Lord and to "feast on his love with faith and thanksgiving." "Handmaid of Heaven" is a new text for the beloved Lourdes hymn, "Immaculate Mary."
Songs for Pentecost, Evening Prayer and more
"Holy Breath of God" is a contemporary setting of the Pentecost sequence. A lovely song for evening prayer, "Come Stay with Us" retells the story of the disciples on the road to Emmaus. Dan wrote "Litany of Peace" for an interdenominational prayer service with the Dali Lama in San Francisco.
Music that builds relationship with God
