Is your church choir starting and you don’t know what to do first? You Stand Above Time is an excellent welcome back for your choir. They will love the catchy refrain and enjoy the harvest theme. This is a great piece to have in the general performance arsenal with a text particularly suited to the second Sunday of Advent.
