John D. Cornish - Augsburg Publishing
"Help of the helpless, O, abide with me." Henry Lyte's familiar hymn is given new meaning with John Cornish's expressive original melody in this prayerful choral anthem. Cornish takes particular care with each verse, building through the prayer to a vision of the eternal with arching choral lines and sweeping piano passages. A song of eternal hope, this is particularly meaningful for memorials and dedication services.
