We have chosen for the title of this CD the refrain of the track “Adoramus Te”. This is a simple chant for use during Eucharistic Adoration sung in praise of Almighty God. “Adoramus Te” translates from Latin into English as“We adore you”. Jesus Christ himself spoke of the love that God the Father has for His children, so it seems natural for God’s people to respond to this love by adoring, praising and blessing God whenever possible. In the words of Psalm 34,“I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise always on my lips”.
Many of the songs on this CD sing the praises of God, some are settings of well-known prayers and psalms and others are inspired by the Word of God found in Sacred Scripture. We wish to offer our music as a gift of worship, adoration, praise and love to our God who blesses and guides our ministry.
This collection of songs is the result of five years’ work and prayer. We pray that the music will bless you and that God will speak to you through the words and melodies. Please keep us and our ministry in your prayers as we continue to allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide our song-writing and music-making for the glory of God.
“Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.”
The words of Psalm 112/113 (FROM THE RISING OF THE SUN), 102/103 (THE LORD IS COMPASSION AND LOVE), and 62/63 (FOR YOU MY SOUL IS THIRSTING) are set to music and reproduced by permission of A P Watt on behalf of The Grail, England.
