The Apostle's Creed

One day after morning worship service, a member of our church approached me. He had in his hand a copy of a song that he grew up singing in Holland. It was the Apostles' Creed. He wanted to see if we might be able to incorporate it in our time of singing. I took it home.

A number of years ago, I was thinking about what our children’s choir should sing at our church’s annual Christmas celebration service. I wanted them to sing Silent Night, but I felt that it might be fun to sing it to a new tune. I wrote a new melody and our children’s choir really enjoyed singing it.

Our daughter Karin (who recorded this song for us) wanted to perform a song for our church’s Good Friday service. I often start writing a song by setting the melody to an existing hymn. For her solo, I chose the well-known atonement hymn “Stricken, Smitten.”

I had dropped my children off at Cornerstone Christian School, then met with my girlfriend for a time of prayer. I was interrupted by a phone call from my husband. He said that the building that housed PianoDisc, where our good friend, Tom Lagomarsino, worked had caught fire.

God Ordains is Right

God Ordains is Right

Whate'er My God Ordains Is Right is a hymn written by Samuel Rodigast in 1675, although it was not sung in the English world until Catherine Winkworth translated it in 1863. This new modern setting aptly complements the rich beauty and joy that is ours knowing that whatever our God ordains is indeed right.

One Sunday in the year 2000, I was not feeling well enough to attend church. While at home, I had a time of prayer and Bible reading. I was so struck by the words of Revelation 4:8-11 that I wanted to write a song based on this passage. I composed the melody and my husband wrote the words.

Loving Shepherd, Living Water is based on Psalms 23. Although there have been many songs written with Psalms 23 as the framework, in this song we tie the themes of Psalms 23 in the Old Testament to Christ the Shepherd as revealed in the New Testament.

Kim Snow, along with her husband Kurt Snow, have written original praise songs, hymns, and songs for childrens choirs. Our friends and family have helped us produce these songs. Don Bosco arranged and produced the music tracks; Ryan Wagner produced many of the vocal tracks; and, our daughter, Karin, is the vocalist.

To encourage the church and inspire them to rediscover the great hymns of the faith, we are offering our songs free of charge. We would ask only one favor: If you use CCLI, please record the usage of our songs in your reports.

  • All Things Work Together

    I had dropped my children off at Cornerstone Christian School, then met with my girlfriend for a time of prayer. I was interrupted by a phone call from my husband. He said that the building that housed PianoDisc, where our good friend, Tom Lagomarsino, worked had caught fire. My heart went out to him and the owners and immediately began praying for them. On my way home I drove by the business. It looked like a tragedy...most of the building had burned down. On my way home, instead of feeling sad, I experienced the peace of the Lord and began to hum a tune. The result was one of my favorite songs, All Things Work Together. As you can guess, it is taken from Romans 8:28. It is dedicated to Tom Lagomarsino, and the owners of PianoDisc, the Burgett family.

  • The Apostles' Creed

    One day after morning worship service, a member of our church approached me. He had in his hand a copy of a song that he grew up singing in Holland. It was the Apostles' Creed. He wanted to see if we might be able to incorporate it in our time of singing. I took it home. As I reviewed it, I began to tinker with the melody. Soon, I had come up with an entirely different, new tune. I consider it a great, and awe-inspiring privilege to write a contemporary melody for such ancient words--words that the saints have confessed for hundreds of years. This song is dedicated to our friend Nico Bouwkamp.

    A number of years ago, I was thinking about what our children’s choir should sing at our church’s annual Christmas celebration service. I wanted them to sing "Silent Night," but I felt that it might be fun to sing it to a new tune. I wrote a new melody and our children’s choir really enjoyed singing it. Indeed, we sang it several more times in subsequent years. Both my husband and I thought the song was beautiful, however, we both realized that most people are going to continue singing "Silent Night" as it was written many years ago. So, my husband wrote some new lyrics.

    Loving Shepherd, Living Water is based on Psalms 23. Although there have been many songs written with Psalms 23 as the framework, in this song we tie the themes of Psalms 23 in the Old Testament to Christ the Shepherd as revealed in the New Testament. In verse 1 "he leadeth me beside the still waters" is tied to Christ the "Living Water" (John 4:10). The dark night of the "valley of the shadow of death" is contrasted with the "Light of the World" (John 1:5-8). And finally, in verse 3, the "table before me" is tied to the true and lasting sustenance, Christ the "Bread of Life" (John 6:35).

    Our daughter Karin (who recorded this song for us) wanted to perform a song for our church’s Good Friday service. I often start writing a song by setting the melody to an existing hymn. For her solo, I chose the well-known atonement hymn “Stricken, Smitten.” But just like our song, “The Christmas King,” my husband and I agreed that such a haunting melody deserved a fresh set of lyrics. “The Passion Hymn” is the fruit of that conversation.

  • Whate'er My God Ordains Is Right

    Whate'er My God Ordains Is Right is a hymn written by Samuel Rodigast in 1675, although it was not sung in the English world until Catherine Winkworth translated it in 1863. This new modern setting aptly complements the rich beauty and joy that is ours knowing that whatever our God ordains is indeed right. This song is especially meaningful to me. One Sunday after morning worship, a dear friend of mine asked if I had ever read the words of this great hymn. I replied that I really had not paid too much attention to them. She encouraged me to meditate on these rich words. That week, in the midst of mulling over the sovereignty of God, my youngest toddler son was accidentally run over by our neighbor's van as he backed out of his garage. On the way to the hospital, sitting in the ambulance, the words "he leads me by the proper path; I know he will not leave me. I take, content, what he hath sent..." ran through my mind. Praise be to God, my son was spared that day many years ago. My prayer is that the church of Jesus Christ will rediscover this new hymn, because of the great words, and in part because of this new tune.
