formerly titled 'Future All Stars'
Duration: approx. 4:00
Songs referenced in the work are the children's chorus I'll do my best (as sung by Go Fish) and SASB 277 Who comes to me, the Saviour said. The words to the chorus simply say:
I'll do my best, I'll do my bestI'll do my best for you...
Who comes to me, the Saviour said,To him I freely giveEternal life; though he were deadYet henceforth shall he live.His life shall be with gladness filled,His treasure is on high,Bright sunshine shall his pathway gildAnd he shall never die.The Saviour now will give,The Saviour now will give,Eternal life to all who seek,The Saviour now will give.Who comes to me, the Saviour said,That soul will I supplyWith portions of that living breadWhich riches cannot buy.That soul shall never hunger more,But filled shall ever beWith plenty from the unfailing storeHe ever finds in me.William Kitching (1837-1906)
To me both songs perfectly sum up the ethos of the Future All Stars initiative, which not only celebrates excellence in faith and music, but spurs on a new generation of Christians to 'do their best' for the Master, because eternal life isn't just a promise for tomorrow, it is a way of living today.
