Song of Hope – Finale

I believe in God the Father

maker of heaven and earth

And in Jesus Christ, his only

his only son, our Lord;

Conceived by the awesome power

of the Holy Spirit

And born in a lowly stable

of the virgin Mary;

Suffered under Pontius Pilate

was crucified, dead, and buried;

He descended to the dead,

on the third day rose again.

He ascended into heaven

and sits at God’s right hand.

He will come to judge all nations,

his kingdom will have no end.

Jesus came

Jesus died

Jesus rose up from the grave

Jesus reigns in heav’n above

Angels bow before Him.

Mary’s Song

You don’t know me if you don’t know this about me: music is my first language. When English fails me, music remains; God knew I needed it to know Him more deeply than English has words for. I offer to you today a gift God have me to give to others, this setting of the Magnificat, Mary pouring out her heart as a gift to all of us. Please give yourself time to settle and listen and receive.

Grace and peace to you you…

On Christmas Eve I had the tremendous privilege to hear Mary’s Song the way I originally imagined it – sung in a worship service.

Lamb of God

It’s Holy Week. I’d like to share some music with you, a setting of Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) I wrote a couple of years back.

John the Baptist said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.”
