At the plaintive strains of Silent Night, this sensitively designed anthem of reflection rises like a prayer to call the church to the grace of God's table. Surrounded by tender music, this song delivers candlelit sonorities and cloistered chords to match the contemplative nature of the text. As the final verse issues a challenge for us to take the gift to the world, an effective crescendo raises the call before allowing the anthem to end in peaceful calm as it began. Violin (or C-instrument) part included. Duration: ca. 4:16.
