Jesus Our True Friend
The composer has combined two beloved hymns, "What A Friend We Have In Jesus" and "Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus" to create a lovely, sensitive composition. Opening with "Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus", the melody is enhanced by a gentle, flowing accompaniment. The piece moves into the second hymn, with the melody presented on handchimes, accompanied by the handbells, before returning to the original hymn, presented with full chords and a rich running eighth note bass pattern. The medley is arranged in the keys of Eb Major and F Major and is 68 measures.
