Give Me A New, A Perfect Heart
This Wesley text last appeared in the 1905 Methodist Hymnal. Ryan D. Neaveill, minister of music at Grace UMC in Decatur, Illinois, and a seminarian at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, wrote this tune on March 15 -- hence the tune name, Ides. The hymn is especially appropriate for Lent.
Ryan D. Neaveill's photo, biography, contact information and links to additional songs and choral music are available on the Discipleship Ministries website.
