CGB1055.mp3 2
Music Sample: CGB1055 SOLO

An exquisite melody was crafted by Gabriel Faure in 1890 to musically express a prayerful poem by Stephan BordĀse. This lovely arrangement offers the flexibility of being rung either as a handbell solo or duet.  It will provide a wonderful enhancement to worship services, concerts, and other occasions.  Reproducible extrated parts for solo and duet ringers are included.


Here is a literal translation of the poem:

If a child's voice can be lifted up to You, my Father,

hear the prayer of Jesus as I kneel before You.

If you have chosen me to teach your ways on earth,

I will know how to serve You, O King of kings, O Light!

Place the truth upon my lips, Lord, that those who doubt may revere You with humility!

Do not abandon me; give me the necessary gentleness to ease suffering; to relive pain and misery.

Reveal Yourself to me, Lord, in whom I believe and hope.

For You I will suffer and die on the cross at Calvary.

(translation by Fred Gramann)
