Sung by Pender's Choir on September 19, 2021
Written by Joseph M. Martin
Written during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, this song of spiritual and physical wellness speaks to many moments of need. Opening with the first few chords of O God, Our Help in Ages Past, the anthem is framed as a petition for God's healing mercy.
The unison melody gently rises and falls before all join in on the prayerful refrain: "In the silence help us hear words of hope and promise clear. Teach us not to live in fear. Lord of all, we pray to you." A true anthem of hope!
