Go Forth in Joy

From time to time my interest in prayers and litany for worship has led me into song, at least the words if not some efforts at a melody. Scott Taylor, our Director of Music and Worship Arts at our church, asked me to write some new words for Easter to the familiar tune of HYFYRDOL. With Sylvia’s gold and white “Bright Morning Star” banners shining at the front of the church, we sang it in closing, a brass ensemble joining us to sparkle the air. Now we move on to Earth Day in a resurrection spirit for this magnificent and threatened world that is our home.
