[No audio or video for this song unfortunately.]

Usage Notes:
Sing the response twice at the start and end of the song. Sing only once in between verses.

Also, try to resist the urge to resolve the song with a D-minor chord at the end. Ending with the A7 chord may sound lacking when you sing the song during practice, but in the Mass, doing so instills in the music a certain sense of anticipation for the second reading.

Story Behind the Song:
The melody is taken from one of the Easter Vigil psalms (after the second reading) that I composed but was not able to complete in time for the Easter celebration this year.

Prayer-ware Intention:
Feel free to use this music for all non-commercial purposes. I ask for no payments or donations. I do however ask that you please pray for an intention for each song you use.
For this psalm, please pray for all those looking for direction in life –that they may realize God wants what’s best for them if they only ask to do His will.

Final Word:
If this music is a blessing to you, feel free to spread the music to other choirs, other music directors. Also join me on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/MassMusicByLionel) so you get the latest music pieces and videos.
