The light that outshines tragedy

When I sang the final hymn at our church on Sunday following the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, I knew immediately that it had been chosen to send comfort to the children and families in that New England community. The hymn was a poem set to a composition by Beethoven: 

Loving Father, we Thy children
   Look to Thee in fear’s dark night 
While the angels of Thy presence 
   Guide us upward to the light.
(Rosemary B. Hackett, Christian Science Hymnal, No. 181, © CSBD). 

We'd love to hear from you!
