Sarah Hart is another person who loves and serves God through music.  She has written and recorded many songs, and some of them have been recorded by other artists, such as Amy Grant.  You can sample her music at spiritandsong.com, and learn more about her at her website: www.sarahhart.com.  Print editions of many her songs, and arrangements for choirs, with parts for various instruments, are available at OCP.org.
