This is a more simple, vulnerable video for today: just me, a microphone, and a piano, singing to the Creator the stars of night.
(In the cold Canadian winter. ?)
This 9th century chant is hauntingly beautiful in its noble simplicity and depth of meaning. For example:
“Thou grieving at the bitter cry,
Of all creation doomed to die,
Didst come to save a ruined race,
With healing gifts of heav’nly grace.
Thou camest, Bridegroom of the Bride,
As drew the world to ev’ningtide,
Proceeding from a Virgin shrine,
The Son of Man, yet Lord Divine.”
How amazing is it that we have a Saviour?! Come, Lord Jesus!
Thanks for listening! Feel free to give this video a share ?
