Grand Ferry is named for Grand Ferry Park, near my home in Brooklyn. This tune was sung at the 2010 Western Massachusetts Composium. It was also performed by The Art Mob in their Winter, 2009 concerts.


Sweet rivers of redeeming love
Lie just before mine eye,
Had I the pinions of a dove
I’d to those rivers fly.

My raptur'd soul shall drink and feast
In love’s unbounded sea:
The glorious hope of endless rest
Is ravishing for me.
