A Few Words from MAL GRAETZ
GOD GIVES Book 4 was published in 1998 by 'Uniting Education', a branch of the Uniting Church in Australia. Jan Oliver says in the song book introduction, The latest publication in the GOD GIVES series has come about because of the demand for more children’s songs that focus on the special events in the church calendar.
These 11 songs are the sequel to the Christmas Songs 1-9 published in 2021. Songs 10-13 focus on Palm Sunday when Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, fulfilling the ancient prophecy from Zechariah. Song 14 asks the question, “Why Good Friday on such a sad day?" Songs 15-17 focus on the resurrection of Jesus while songs 18-20 celebrate Pentecost with the coming of the Holy Spirit.
