Let us bless God for the gift of music

O Christ, whose birth was greeted with the song of angels,

whose mother sang as she magnified the Lord,

and who was greeted in the Temple by the song of Simeon,

we bless you for the gift of music.


For music

which calms our fears,

lifts our hearts,

speaks to our souls,

and takes us beyond words

into the presence of your joy.


Give us, O Lord,

A deeper love for this language of your praise;


that in its light, we may see your light,

and in its glory, find your glory,


O Christ our life, our love,

our endless song.
