Spirit of Comfort, Spirit of Hope
Douglas Nolan/arr. David Angerman

This heartfelt testament of God's restorative grace is an anthem dedicated to a special community of faith. Following a tragic EF5 tornado that destroyed the church and devastated the city of Joplin, Missouri, the people rebuilt their church. The words of the song are a dramatic reminder that grace is "like an ark sailing through a sea of tears." The opening utilizes the plainsong tune DIVINUM MYSTERIUM, often associated with Advent but here reworked for Pentecost. The piece then evolves into a more contemporary praise song that is a true call to worship for a grateful church. Perfect for the season of Pentecost!
