Story

Sample pages.  

Ride On, King Jesus was written for the Feast of Christ the King which concludes the liturgical year in the Roman Catholic Church. Composed for St. Joseph’s Church in Greenwich Village at which my husband Chris Creaghan was music director, Ride On is an expression of jubilation over the realization that Jesus, God of infinite goodness and love, is our only true master.

Recording: Ain't Got Time to Die
Choir of The First Presbyterian Church, NYC.

Lyrics

Text:

Ride on, King Jesus! 
No man can-a hinder me.
Ride on, King Jesus, Ride on!
No man can-a hinder me.

For He is King of kings, 
For He is Lord of lords, 
Jesus Christ the first and last, 
No man works like Him.

King Jesus rides a milk-white horse. 
The river of Jordan He did cross.

King Jesus rides in the middle of the air. 
He calls the saints from ev'rywhere.
