Musical Musings~ Reflections on Sunday’s Music

April 13, 2014
  1. Texts for meditation
Today, I present to you two texts to meditate on at special points during the service:
Baptism improvisation immediately following the message:
  • Christ’s resurrection is to us as the crossing of the Red Sea into new freedom;It is a baptism, this resurrection, deep into blue water to new life; it is a spring rain that springs green; it is a drink of cool water in a thirsty land; this resurrection, it is a fountain pouring forth at the center of life. A fountain. Come, all who are thirst, And drink. (Susan Cherwien)
 During the playing of the postlude:
  • Ride on! Ride on in majesty! In lowly pomp ride on to die; O Christ, thy triumphs now begin, o’er captive death and conquered sin. Ride on! Ride on in majesty! In lowly pomp ride on to die; Bow thy meek head to mortal pain, Then take, O God thy power, and reign.  (Henry Hart Milman)
                                                                        -‘til Sunday-Robert Morehead
