Choose the official EYD song

We need a European Youth Day song –and you decide which one it will be! The official song of the EYD should musically represent the European Youth Day. Its premier will be at the opening event and will accompany you over the whole weekend. It may now be chosen from a list of six selected titles.

The idea was raised at the very first planning meeting that the young participants of the European Youth Day should be able to vote for their EYD song through the internet.

Preparation by the project group for music

This project was prepared in the past few months: the project group responsible for music under the leadership of Apostle Hans-Jürgen Bauer (New Apostolic Church in Southern Germany) gathered suggestions from the district churches and selected six musical pieces from these, from which all the young participants can choose their favourite.

The musical titles:

1. Bleiben an Jesu Hand

2. Jesus our future!

3. Jesus, the light of the world

4. Nur mit Jesus!

5. There's a light - Jesus Christ

6. Come to my Jesus

The six songs represent different styles. They may be heard on the official website of the European Youth Day, where the song texts can also be read.

Voting box on the official website

Using the “voting box” you can choose your favourite title. The song with the most votes will be crowned the official EYD song.

The songs, from different composers and musicians, were carefully selected for the setting under studio conditions in a uniform manner (piano with solo vocal), so that they would sound similar and therefore comparable. For the European Youth Day, the winning song will then be further processed so that it can be played by a small band.

You decide the EYD Song!
