Never a Friend Like Jesus

Octaves Handbell: 3 – 5

Octaves Handchimes: 3

A Salvation Army officer, Edward Joy, was meditating on 1st Peter 5:7 and wrote this beautiful little hymn around 1920.  This arrangement is beautifully crafted with lovely modulations through the three key changes. Melody is featured in both the bells and handchimes, supported by lovely LV passages and countermelodies. This is a wonderful hymn, and will be a perfect addition to worship.  It should be noted that the bells used chart may look daunting but accidentals are infrequent and this beautifully arranged score is quite accessible.
