At the Lamb's High Feast We Sing--a favorite from my eldest daughter's funeral, which happened like her baptism during Easter season. Luckily I knew it by heart 'cause I was carrying in the Gospel book on my first day in the new church as a chalice bearer. And Marty Haugen's Shepherd Me, O God for the psalm. Lots of joy!
Today I was musically brave @ my church. Although we recite The Mystery of Faith, we have never sung it. And I like it sung. But I needed to cant it, for people to respond. . .so I opened my mouth and tried to carry a tune. Eek! Worked okay, though.
I love this so, and love singing it too. Thanks for the video!
WE sanfg all "classic" hymns today:Come O Fount of Every BlessingPsalm 23 (to crimond)There's a wideness in God's MercyO For 1000 Tongues to SIng.THe first and last should be quick and peppy. They weren't.
In our little United Church of Canada in Northern Ontario, with a wonderful 14 voice choir, we sang Joyful, JoyfulPsalm 23 (Crimond)Are You a Shepherd?(Ruth Duck) Come Touch Our Hearts (Gordon Light)Bread for the Journey (Bruce Harding)
I love this piece. So good for the soul. :)
I love the sampler in the photo!
Marty Haugen's Shepherd Me, O God, and the old "The Lord's My Shepherd," CRIMOND, from the Pilgrim Hymnal. Used the Haugen as the communion hymn, and I was cantor as this was new for the congregation.
