A useful anthem that relates the importance of music in the Christian life.

Anthem text
The song is faith: our wonder now professing,
we take up hymns that heav'n itself has sung
in praise of God, the giver of the blessing,
who comes in Christ to sing with human tongue.

Before all time, God sent the music sounding,
a seamless, flawless, endless melody,
a lilt of grace to set the spirits bounding
of all God's children made forever free.

Let God's good pleasure breathe in songs ascending
God's grace indwell the music we now lift,
a hymn of Christ, beloved and unending,
the earthly echo of a heav'nly gift.

The song is love: it sounds in all our living
as saints are fed, and struggling souls find rest.
A servant song becomes our high thanksgiving,
a canticle in work made manifest.

O Christ, sing on in everny new endeavor,
enlightened music, glorious Godly dance,
that gives your people now, here, and forever,
a song of hope as our inheritance.

--John Core
