"Joy is the mantle that clothes a life of sacrifice and self-giving."
My thoughts on liturgy, music and the Church!
Oh dear....O STORE GUD is low in A-flat!Do you ever get the sense that this hymn doesn’t square with Catholic theology? I confess, I am purposely omitting it from my funeral music recommendations. It seems to suggest a denial of the judgement of each person.It at least is different in character from, say, verse 5 of “Conditor alme siderum”:O Thou, Whose coming is with dreadTo judge the living and the deadPreserve us, while we dwell belowFrom every insult of the foe.
yeah, but it's stinkin' high in Bb! Yeah, I agree that the theology of the 4th verse isn't completely Catholic, same with Amazing Grace... (stupid Protestant hymns that everyone loves...)
Hm - ok, I agree around about the *end* of O STORE GUD. But *yech* about singing the beginning down there!“..and I will RAAAAIIISE you up...”
