His Light In Us (Premiere Performance)
Music by Kim André Arnesen, Words by Euan Tait
The St. Olaf Choir
Anton Armstrong, Conductor

God’s distant call
Flares in the night,
So long expected, so longed for;
And all my life,
Christ called my name,
And now at last, I’ll answer Him.

Renewed, his hope,
His light in us,
Incarnate, fragile,
Our Lord appears,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
So perfect,
His cry of changeless love.

Alive, awake,
His call is here:
It is the crying of the Child;
I know Christ’s call,
Its hidden flame,
It makes my spirit flare with hope!


This root, this stem, this flowering Love,
This mustard seed, it grows to the greatest tree,
The birds of souls have nested there.
The light of the night
Now blazes at dawn!

You’ve lead me here,
O little child,
Your being singing with God’s life.
The kingdom sings,
It choirs with earth,
All creation lives Christ’s peace.
