Several months ago I began singing to Jack the same beautiful song, “The Choral Benediction,” every night. Well… the song is beautiful, my singing is not always all that great. In high school, our choir sang this song to close every concert. Below is a video from youtube a member of my sister’s choir took during their performance of “the Choral Ben” in Vatican Square.
Recently, Jack has begun to “sing” along with me. It is so sweet to hear his voice linger on one note and even seem to carry the rhythm of the song. The other night, I swear he tried to sing “Amen.”
The words to the song are from Numbers 6:24-26, often referred to as “Aaron’s Prayer.”
This is also my prayer for you today.
The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord lift his countenance upon you
and give you peace.
The Lord make his face to shine upon you
and be gracious unto you.
