A Gift of . . . Worship

Eleven-year-old singer Jackie Evancho’s O Holy Night is my current favorite set of drive tunes. My unlikely favorite of these is “Pie Jesu,” originally penned as a Latin song written for the dead ( called a “requiem”). In Jackie’s shimmering soprano, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s arrangement of these very ancient lyrics is both beautiful and haunting. And very appropriate for this Christmas season—

As our Savior, Jesus faced human, physical death to bring us back to the Father.  .  .

He was born the lamb of Mary. Jesus is our Lamb of our redemption–!

Only through Jesus’ death and sacrifice, can we find peace. Eternal peace. . .

We worship and adore You, Lord, for Your inestimable Gift. . .given for us.

Lookin’ up,
