    Mary ….. What a beautiful song-prayer! Eugene Earl Englert’s melody matches the depths of the words. Your word adaptation makes it the pray-er’s own. I love the pace …. sung from somewhere deep in the soul to our God of Love. For five minutes, I felt held in that loving Presence. Your voice is true; the accompaniment unhurried…… even to leaving your foot on the pedal through the last note. I’d prefer a better balance of microphone for your voice with the piano which was stronger.
    Thank you for the honor of hearing it on its first day. Blessings as you expand this musical aspect into your regular work.
    Joy to you! – Nancy

      Dear Nancy: Thanks so much for your feedback on this first recording using my mother’s upright piano in our Great Room. I completely agree that better sound engineering is needed to capture the voice over the piano – we will experiment with this!
      Love and light,
