Inevitably, most hymn books can only include a limited number of hymn choices for the occasional services - baptism, confirmation, marriage, funerals, ordination, services for healing and wholeness. "Draw Near to God" extends the choices available with contemporary hymns mostly set to well known tunes. Included is a wedding hymn based on "1 Corinthians 13" - one of the most popular readings at weddings - to a tune that is easy to sing.
