Music St. Francis

New Age Gloria

I had the privilege of writing and playing music for St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Portland, Oregon in the 1970s and ’80s.

On October 4th, 2015, Feast of St. Francis, the current “folk group” was joined by musicians and singers from the folk group who had performed at the church’s 100th Anniversary in 1981. The celebration was recorded and the resulting album, Songs of St. Francis, is available for download here.

You know that I marvel at your glory, Oh God.
And the peace that knowing you gives is here for all.
Oh my God, you’re everything. “You’re my Mother, you’re my Father”, all creation sings.
“We worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory”, all creation sings.

Oh, Lord Jesus Christ, God’s special son.
The sacrificial Lamb of God, Lord and God are one.
You opened the door to a life of grace.
You’re the fountain of mercy, you hear my prayer, you show me your face.
Yes, You are the Holy One, yes You are the Lord.
Yes, You are the Most High, Jesus Christ.
With the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father, Amen.
