About “Drawn To The Light”

The first verse of “Drawn To The Light” is based on Isaiah 9:1-4; the second verse is from II Peter 1:19; and the third verse is from Revelation 21:22-26. The tune name is “LaCrosse” because it was premiered at a WELCA Conference held in La Crosse, WI. The four-note sequence that is repetitive in the song is the same four notes found in an old English tune called “Swarthfels Rocks”.
