Lenten Calendar–First 10 Days

Mar 4, 2012

Below is my calendar of God names. What I notice is the number of songs I associate with the words.

“When God Almighty came to be one of us,
Masking the glory of his golden train.
Dozens of plain things kindled by accident,
And they will never be the same again.
(Author, Michael Hewlett?)

Creator of the stars of night,
Your people’s everlasting light,
O Christ, Redeemer of us all,
We pray you hear us when we call.
(6th, 7th or 9th century chant, Latin, Hymnal 1940 version)

The gentle Healer came
Into our town today
He touched blind eyes
And the darkness left to stay
But more than the blindness,
He took their sins away
The gentle Healer came
Into our town today.
(The Gentle Healer by Michael Card on 2 disc collection called The Life)
