  1. This song is on the 'Scripture in Song' tapes of old - you can find them on you tube. I am fairly sure it was written by David & Dale Garrett - the first to put Scripture into song to help us remember it better. I love many of their songs and this is one of my favourites.

  2. Hi everyone I've found the written music for "But we see Jesus" by Angie Drench 1972. It was in the Resource Chorus Book arranged by Noelene Prince 1981. How do I get it out there?
