Purchase Somewhere Beyond the Blue Performed by the Heavenly Sisters of Arnhem Land

We hope you will enjoy our songs. One day you will come to meet the Lord as your saviour. My favorite song is: "Without him I would do nothing. Without him I would be lost. Without him I would be like a ship without a sail". We will have to record that another day.

Please purchase our songs for your family's personal listening but do not copy the song as our community needs the funds that we hope will come from people purchasing our songs and listening to our singing! Tell your friends to support us by purchasing our songs too.

All proceeds from the sale of this song go to help our community through Gawurr Praise - the Christian Fellowship of the Galpu clan of East Arnhem Land. Gawurr Praise is a part of the Uniting Church.
