This recording shows the beginnings of the song styles that would become known as the "Answer Hymn" sound. Although many of these songs were written individually by either Lisa Chaddock or Geoff Hanson, the very first song that the trio wrote together, "Sing, O Saint" is on this CD. It was written at the request by a man who simply walked up to Lisa and Geoff at a Cursillo Convention and asked if they could write something to his reading that day, "Sing, oh saint, Jesus is with you." We don't know where he got the saying or why it meant so much to him, but being obedient we wrote the song and sang it the following day to close the convention!
"For His Child" has become a favorite of many people, because it speaks to the deepest desires of the heart and of our relationship to God.
The group selected the name "Answer Hymn" to represent the devotion of their music. "Answer" signifies that their music is a response and "Hymn," which in a play on words replaces "Him", signifies the traditional aspect of their compositions.
We in Answer Hymn pray that this music touches your heart and soul, and gives you peace and much enjoyment.
