MUSIC - For the Glory of God

When in our music God is glorified,  and adoration leaves no room for pride, it is as though the whole creation cried,  "Alleluia!"


How often, making music, we have found  a new dimension in the world of sound, as worship moved us to a more profound Alleluia!


So has the Church, in liturgy and song,  in faith and love, through centuries of wrong, borne witness to the truth in every tongue: Alleluia!


And did not Jesus sing a psalm that night  when utmost evil strove against the Light? Then let us sing, for whom he won the fight: Alleluia!


Let every instrument be tuned for praise!  Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise! And may God give us faith to sing always: Alleluia!
