Click to enlargeThe Things of Christ (SATB w/piano)

David Hepburn is a retired minister-of-music, choir director, band director, missionary, teacher, and school president, and a fine tenor and trumpeter. His many compositions are a testament to the works of Jesus he has seen in the lives of others and in his own life.

David wrote this song for his musical Philippians - A Love Letter, basing it on Phiippians 3:7.

Some things are worthless,
Some things are priceless,
And I must do the things I feel are best for me.

Things of momentary satisfaction have attraction,
But they draw my mind away from God's eternity.
If I seek the priceless things, the things of Christ, what joy it brings,
Then suddenly I feel I'm what I ought to be.
I'll put aside the worthless things, the momentary joy they bring,
In order that I might be one with Christ.

Oh, the joy, the real joy of knowing Je-sus Christ as Lord,
And trusting Him alone, and living by His word.

I don't mean to say I'm perfect- God's not finished yet.
But He's working in my heart my friend, and I have no regret.
My yesterdays are all behind, tomorrow's a brand new day!
With confidence I smile and sing;
With joy, I now can say:

Things of momentary satisfaction have attraction,
But they draw my mind away from God's eternity.
If I seek the priceless things, the things of Christ, what joy it brings,
Then suddenly I feel I'm what I ought to be.
I'll put aside the worthless things, the momentary joy they bring,
In order that I might be one with Christ.

Oh, the joy, the real joy of knowing Jesus Christ as Lord,
And trusting Him alone, and living by His word.

WE SEEK RECORDINGS TO USE AS DEMOS
The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.

BLANKET RECORDING POLICY FOR SHEET MUSIC
Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than www.tributek.com to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as www.tributek.com, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.

The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"

I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."
