Holy Week Music Day 2: What Wondrous Love

What Wondrous Love (Josh Blakesley)

Prayed by Ken Boyce and Libby Saxton

A Reflection by Libby Saxton, Director of Music and Liturgy:
It is the question of all time. What kind of love would take my place in death? What amazing love? What wondrous love? This repetition of this hymn is what really drives home the question. How can we help but sing of God's great love? This contemporary version written by Josh Blakesley was one that our ensemble was working on for Palm Sunday. They would have sounded so masterful! Here, we have it simply with just piano and 2 voices.
