Speak, Lord



Pastorale

play soundtrack...

This is from Murray Wylie's oratorio "The Jerusalem Passion" which was an Australian work, composed in 1987.

This is a flute solo, accompanied by stringed instruments, and does not actually have any words. However the final portion of the piece (no. 6) - of which this is the first of three movements - has the same melody as the flute solo, though set to different timing. Its words can be found at the companion "Jerusalem Passion" website, under the menu name of "libretto".



Where are the Eagles?

This is another composed by Murray Wylie, from his oratorio "The Jerusalem Passion".

References may be found in Matt 24:12, 20, 23; 24:26, 27, 28; Lk 21:26; Rev 4:7; Rev 5:5,6.

For further information please take this link to a page from the 'Jersualem Passion' website on this subject, and this link to read Isaiah's comments about eagles.



We are Gathered

play soundtrack

This is a draft of a worship song written by myself on the Tuesday in the week after Easter 1999.

The background to this song, and its meaning, and the scene which it describes, is quite long, and it relates to an occurrence one night several years ago, in which I was privileged to see the scene the song describes, in what some people might call an "out of body experience".

Some of the words are reminscent of the scene described by the apostle John, the author of "The Revelation", where he describes similar activites that he also saw in vision.

The encouragement to write the song was as a result of being given words to sing as a 'new song', along with a different melody to which to sing them, as a free expression of worship to Almighty God during church on that Easter Sunday, two days before.



Speak, Lord

play soundtrack

This is a worship song composed by David Hall, one of the ministers at the church I attended until early 2001.

Exodus 21 (specifically verse 6) describes how if a slave choses not to be set free at the end of the prescribed period of his servitude, he should have his ear attached to the door of his master's house, demonstrating his willingness to continue to serve his master.

This concept is used here to illustrate the Christian's willingness and happiness to serve his or her Master, the Lord.
