May The God Of Hope Fill You (Romans 15:13)

Narrative or description

Our church choir, as is most church choirs, is a tight community that was devastated once we learned that not only would we not be able to gather together until the pandemic eased, but the act of singing together could physically be the most harmful thing we could do to spread this horrible disease. Though zoom calls were nice for fellowship, our choir deeply missed the ways we could connect to one another through music.

To make a long story short, I wanted to write a piece of music that could be sung by members of our choir from their homes, that also provided optimism and hope. I stumbled upon Romans 15:13, which became the text for the music included in this post.

I am grateful for the technology to be able to put something like this together, and I am praying and longing for the day where we can sing again together, in person, to worship God.
