Bruce over at invited some folks to write new music for a collection of hymn texts based on the Apostle’s Creed called Lyra Fidelium. The whole collection of new tunes, along with chord sheets, is available for free download on BandCamp. Check out the original texts by Samuel John Stone, and read Bruce’s intro of the idea. Thanks Bruce for a fun and encouraging project!

Article XI, The Resurrection of the Body
Winter In His Heart of Gloom
Words by Samuel John Stone (Lyra Fidelium,1866) and Cameron Gray, 2010. Music by Cameron Gray. ©2010 Rough Harbor Music.

Winter in his heart of gloom
Sings the song of coming bloom;
So o’er death our souls shall sing
Lays of the eternal spring
Then decay shall be no more
And, the weary seed-time o’er,
All the dead in Christ shall rise
For the Harvest of the skies

Then there shall be, there shall be
Then there shall be, there shall be
Then there shall be sorrow no more, no more

We from earth to heaven shall soar
In that flesh which once we wore,
Deathless now and glorified
Like our Lord and at His side
This is life’s eternal Spring
This the coming joy we sing
Look we ever toward that Day
Be it near or far away

Mid the sorrow and the strife
Tis the music of our life,
And our song has this refrain,
Our Redeemer comes again
Our Redeemer comes
