I wrote this tune on the way to the 2016 German Sacred Harp Convention in Berlin. 381 Sing On is an influence.
Dedicated to Sue Lord.
When sin prevails, and gloomy fear,
And hope almost expires in night,
Lord, can thy Spirit then be here,
Great spring of comfort, life, and light?
Let thy kind Spirit in my heart
Forever dwell, O God of love,
And light and heav'nly peace impart,
Sweet earnest of the joys above.
