This is a moderately difficult piano setting of the sacred tune, "Divinium Mysterium (corde natus)". This solo functions very well as an offertory in an Advent/Christmas service. It lasts approximately 3:18 depending on speed.

A recommendation I have for performing this arrangement is to liberally use the pedal and let the harmonies overlap much like they would in a beautiful, echoing cathedral.

These verses below are recommended if any media is to be used.

Of the Father’s love begotten
ere the worlds began to be,
He is Alpha and Omega;
He the source, the ending He,
of the things that are, that have been,
and that future years shall see
evermore and evermore!

O that birth forever blessed,
when a virgin, full of grace,
by the Holy Ghost conceiving,
bore the Savior of our race;
and the Babe, the world’s Redeemer,
first revealed his sacred face,
evermore and evermore!
