This hymn plumbs the depth of our hopes and fears. It gives the faithful words of defiance against evil and its temptations, dark nights of the soul, and death itself.
Magnificent, superb--- not enough adjectives of praise for the love and beauty of Jesus.
I love this motet. One of my all-time favorites. I had the privilege of singing it in my college choir. Thank you for sharing this, and for reminding us that Jesus is our greatest treasure.
Oh….just reading the words before even hearing the music and singing blesses my soul!!! Now I will play the rest of what you sent today. What a joy to have these messages in my phone!!
One of the loveliest pieces ever written!
What a wonderful hymn that I had not heard before. I am painting 16’ baseboards before installation. They are set on sawhorses. As I listened I found I was going in time with the hymn. Painted five boards without thinking about it. Will need to recue for the next five. Thank you.
