A Harmony Pastor Feedback: NIGHT PRAYER: Sunday 12/4

On Sundays, Evening Prayer will give attention to a component from the day’s celebration of Mass.  Tonight we replicate on a verse present in today’s gospel: 

    A voice of 1 crying out within the desert, 

         ‘Put together the best way of the Lord, make straight his paths.'”


Your one voice calls me, Lord:
    you converse to my coronary heart
    in all its dry and barren locations,

    within the wilderness my life can typically be…

You name me by identify
    to arrange a approach for you
    who come to make of my wilderness
    a lush and blooming backyard…

You name me to vary,
    to vary my wishes, my habits, my methods:
    to clear a clean path
    so that you can come to make your house in me…

You name me to make peace
    the place I’m, the place I reside,
    the place I work and the place I play
    with all I meet and know,
    whose paths cross mine every day…

Of all of the voices ‘spherical me, Lord,
    attune my ears to yours
 calling me to clear a path,

    a approach into my coronary heart…

Shield me, Lord, whereas I am awake
and watch over me whereas I sleep
that awake, I would maintain look ahead to you
and asleep, relaxation in your peace…


It is arduous to consider that it was 32 years in the past that I sang lead vocal on Rachel Burckardt’s lovely Creation tune, One Voice.  This piece was included on the album, Gross Santa’s Yuletide Favorities – which is not as bizarre because it sounds – comply with the hyperlink!  Musicians for One Voice got here from the Wooden Harbor Ensemble and the choir of St. Ann College Parish in Boston the place I served as a campus minister for Northeastern College and Emerson Faculty from 1982-1991. (Apparently, I actually am 75 years outdated!)
