Near to the Heart of God - Trombone Solo


This Trombone Solo is based on the American hymn by Cleland B. McAfee, written after two of his nieces had died from diptheria. The solo was originally written for Brad Turnbull and features trombone and band in a restful and reflective style.

There is a place of quiet rest,
Near to the heart of God.
A place where sin cannot molest,
Near to the heart of God.

O Jesus, blest Redeemer,
Sent from the heart of God,
Hold us who wait before Thee
Near to the heart of God.
