A solo piano interpretation, arrangement and performance by Andy Wasserman. MORE ABOUT THIS COMPOSITION by Maestro Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington (April 29, 1899 – May 24, 1974): Duke Ellington's First Concert of Sacred Music premiered on September 16, 1965 at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. His composition "Come Sunday" was featured in the program, presented by vocalist Queen Esther Marrow along with the Ellington Orchestra. The song was originally written by Ellington for his "Black, Brown and Beige" Suite and performed as an instrumental for his first Carnegie Hall concert on January 23, 1943. He composed the lyrics in 1958, touching on themes of adversity, blessing, commitment, creation, heaven, obedience, perseverance. The Sacred Concert's song version lyrics are as follows: Oh dear Lord of love God almighty, God above Please, look down and see my people through. I believe the sun and moon Which shine up in the sky When the day is grey I know its clouds passing by. Lily's of the valley They neither toil nor spin And flowers bloom, And Springtime birds sing. Often we feel weary But He knows our every care Go to Him in secret He will hear every prayer. Up from dawn till sunset Man works hard all day Come Sunday, oh come Sunday That's the day. ------------ More information about Andy Wasserman can be found at his official websites andywasserman.com/ pianolessoncity.com/ Musical artist and educator Andy Wasserman has been giving private music lessons online since 2010 with highly interactive, customized and personalized programs of study via video chat in real-time for students around the world (all ages and all levels).
