Blessing

Let nothing disturb thee,
nothing affright thee;
all things are passing,
God never changeth!
Patient endurance attaineth to all things;
who God possesseth
in nothing is wanting;
alone God sufficeth.

+ In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

(from Midday Prayer of Northumbria Community)

I like this, I wonder how it sounds if all were singing it.

JP, I'm sure it could sound very good. It could be chanted well, I would think. Or get someone musically skilled like a Michael Card or a John Michael Talbot and it would be good to go. It's great to have Scipture passages or words like this put to song. Something about singing it is special, a nice way of meditating on it.

Thanks!
