The new recording, You Deserve the Glory… has recently been released, featuring Wendy Webster, of Sacramento, Calif. A Canadian by birth, Wendy immigrated to the western United States in 1982 and met her husband Tim. Together they have served in ministries within the Army for over two decades.
Wendy is a gifted Salvationist musician and with this recording she continues to display her talents as a vocalist, pianist, songwriter and lyricist. This recording highlights her inviting and gentle voice and also features the vocal contributions of her friend Laura Kerr with the support of their friends and family.
This CD provides the listener with a rich variety of musical styles and songs that all point to a resounding message of praise for the Lord Jesus Christ. Beginning with the theme song “You Deserve the Glory,” the listener is transported from reflective praise to the sounds of joyful praise as presented in the creative musical treatment of the familiar words “He Giveth More Grace.” The delightful addition of the Sacramento Citadel Singing Company provides an enjoyable musical interlude with their enthusiastic rendition of Wendy’s “David and G.” The inclusion of this item demonstrates her long time commitment and interest in young people’s ministries.
In addition to the uplifting praise items, many tracks provide time for thoughtful meditation, including such songs as, “Let Him Touch You” and “I’m Committed to You.” The words of these songs remind the listener that God is always present and ready to place his loving arms of comfort around his children as he helps to direct their paths.
Wendy’s well-known song, “Sanctify Us,” has been performed and recorded by numerous groups and soloists around the world; it is a welcome bonus to have this wonderful song included.
This recording provides a message of encouragement, healing and hope for the times in life when sadness and doubt can overwhelm mankind. The Lord will use this musical ministry to lift many spirits to join in giving Jesus the glory He alone deserves.
By adding it to your listening library you will not only be enriching your own life but at the same time your purchase will be financially assisting the World Services of The Salvation Army.
