Musical Meditation June 10, 2020

Hello Trinity Family,

Today I offer “Deep River” arranged by Joel Raney. This spiritual conveys the sense of longing that comes with trusting in the Lord’s promises yet to come. As we continue forward through this season of virtual worship and consider reopening our church doors, I pray that we remember that persevering through uncertainty is a defining characteristic of our faith. As Christians, it is very important that we work to maintain our sense of community with each other and solidarity with people in need.
Many spirituals, including this one, present a call to action. How will we bring about the Lord’s promise of peace as his hands and feet in the world?

Here is the hymn text for your reflection:
Deep River,
My home is over Jordan.
Deep River, Lord.
I want to cross over into campground.
Deep River.
my home is over Jordan.
River, Lord,
I want to cross over into campground.
Oh, don’t you want to go,
To the Gospel feast;
That Promised Land,
Where all is peace?
Oh, deep River, Lord,
I want to cross over into campground.
