John Rippon composed this beautiful hymn in 1787, to the tune of an early American folk song.
About Jennifer GrassmanTHE RECORDING ARTIST || Jennifer Grassman is an award winning sing-songwriter, pianist, and recording artist. Her piano music has been compared to the works of Eric Satie, Chopin, Tori Amos, Vienna Teng, Kate Bush, and Danny Elfman, while voice has been compared to that of Loreena McKennitt, Celtic Woman, Tarja Turunen, Amy Lee of Evanescence, Sarah McLachlan, and Sarah Brightman. Grassman's songs are oftentimes inspired by classic literature, including books like At The Back Of The North Wind by George MacDonald, The Chronicles of Narnia and Space Trilogy by C.S. Lewis, The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, and timeless who-done-its by Agatha Christie featuring her famous sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Grassman has even been inspired by timeless films, such as Rear Window by Alfred Hitchcock, The Wizard Of Oz, and Casablanca.
THE AUTHOR || A budding novelist and poet, Grassman looks forward - later this year - to unveiling some exciting new writing projects she's undertaken, including an epic fantasy novel rumored to involve some extremely nasty dragons, and a collection of "very cu" short stories. As a freelance writer and journalist for The Washington Times Communities, Grassman has interviewed Imogen Heap, Aimee Mann, Mandisa, Matthew West, Brian Ray (of the Paul McCartney band), and a host of other notable artists, producers, and music industry executives.
