We Played the Flute! The Children Said
Text: Carolyn Winfrey Gillette, 2011
Music: tune CANONBURY, Robert Schuman, 1839
This new hymn by Carolyn Winfrey Gillette follows a close reading of Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30. It is a marvelous commentary on the fact that our faith is more an act of the grace of God than one of self-will and control.
