you are loved

 

for soprano, choir (SSA), two horns and harp

with a Chinese traditional woven into it:

"Love Song Over The Meadow"

 

 

 

 

Solo: formed in Your longing

whispered in Your mouth

cherished and born

born and cherished

 

Choir: you are cherished

 

Solo: quiet

as an undiscovered lake

I await

Your spirit

the all-changing

teeming light

 

Choir: you are cherished

 

Solo: Jeshua

fill me

that I can be cleansed

cleans me

that I can be filled

 

Choir: you are encompassed and cherished

 

Solo: all these needles

paining my entire body

guilt I lay on others

splinters of glass and labels

 

my Lord

reveal to me Your hands

 

Choir: my child

 

Solo: teach me to give

like You

teach me to surrender

like You

forgive

like You

 

Choir: my child, take my substance

 

Solo: help me remember

the neverending

blessing

we came from

and live in

sent away

with key around our neck

 

my friend

my mirror

teach me to remember

 

Choir: see benevolence stream

over you like torrents of water

night and day

 

Solo: if You enter

my body

Your purity

flows through my veins

and fills every vacuum

with grit and light

 

grit and light

 

Choir: you are cherished

you are encompassed

you are cared for

everafter filled

for you are

in me, my child
