Item Number: BP.1508
Katharina von Schlegel's poignant words of hope and assurance and Jean Sibelius' famous melody, FINDLANDIA, have always been a favorite combination for churches around the world. Craig Courtney has taken this beloved hymn and encased it is an expressive, sensitive setting. Qiet dignity gives way to a mighty climax in the third verse as we look to the day when "we shall be forever witht he Lord" and all grief, disappointment and fear will be gone. An effective anthem surrounding the themes of suffering, hope and heaven.
