    Rodney's Glory

    Here's an understated take on the traditional Irish tune, Rodney's Glory. You'll usually hear this performed to accompany traditional dancers, or perhaps played as an air, but I'm pleased to bring you the solo piano version. Enjoy.

    O Sacred Head Now Wounded

    Today's selection is a contemplative, solo piano rendition of the ancient hymn, O Sacred Head Now Wounded. It hearkens back to the earlier days of Piano by Joel, when my offerings were informal and minimally edited; more spontaneous, as if we were sitting around the piano together.

    Here are the first few verses:

    O sacred Head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down,
    Now scornfully surrounded with thorns, Thine only crown;
    O sacred Head, what glory, what bliss till now was Thine!
    Yet, though despised and gory, I joy to call Thee mine.

    What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered, was all for sinners’ gain;
    Mine, mine was the transgression, but Thine the deadly pain.
    Lo, here I fall, my Savior! ’Tis I deserve Thy place;
    Look on me with Thy favor, vouchsafe to me Thy grace.

    Shenandoah

    I recently released the traditional folk song, Shenandoah. While there appears to be some dispute about the meaning of the lyrics, I think we can all agree that in conveys a sense of yearning, of longing. This is reminiscent of Hebrews 11:15-16:

    If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

    You can listen to it here.

    Hit play, and read Hebrews 11.
