The Gift of Our Friends

Jack Miffleton

International in flavor, the collection includes songs based on children's prayers from Africa, England, Japan and Israel.



20 songs to nourish a child's budding faith
For many years now, children's composer Jack Miffleton has been a good and generous friend to young people in the Church and in Catholic schools. With The Gift of Our Friends, he offers 20 joyful and eclectic songs to nourish a child's budding faith.

Songs for every season of the year: ideal for K-8
The collection covers every season of the liturgical year, as well as First Communion and other occasions throughout the school year. The songs support prayer, liturgy, faith formation classes, and assemblies -- any time children gather to sing and pray.

Songs based on prayers from Africa, England, Japan and Israel
International in flavor, the collection includes songs based on children's prayers from Africa, England, Japan and Israel. Other songs feature Scripture-based texts, with themes ranging from Mary and angels to creation and the care of animals.

Music carefully crafted for each developmental stage
Conscious of the changing needs behind each developmental stage, Jack has written repetitive, playful songs for very young children and more challenging, traditional songs for early adolescents. Highlights include a sung meal blessing for each season of the year, "Jambo, Yesu!," a call-and-response based on an African prayer, and "Hurt No Living Thing," based on a poem by Christina Rossetti.

A gift to all who minister to children
Filled with imagery that invites friendship with Christ, The Gift of Our Friends is another gift from Jack Miffleton to teachers, music directors, and the young people they serve.
