For I know well the plans I have in mind for you … plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope.
It’s more of an art song than a liturgical piece–not really a congregational song, despite an easy range. It’s my favorite from what seemed the “White Album” of the St Louis Jesuits, from which nothing really landed in any hymnals of note. Which isn’t to say it didn’t have moments of good music.
Anyway, this is less a music review and more a comment on God’s mercy, God’s wish for a future for each and for all of us.
