The Sacred Fight

Well my falsetto isn’t great, but it’s supposed to be for children’s voices. You get the idea…

Click here for the sheet music, but please let me know (via the About page) if you use it. Thanks.

Words taken from Sensitiveness, a poem by Blessed John Henry Newman.

Sensitiveness

Time was, I shrank from what was right,
From fear of what was wrong;
I would not brave the sacred fight,
Because the foe was strong.

But now I cast that finer sense
And sorer shame aside;
Such dread of sin was indolence,
Such aim at heaven was pride.

So, when my Saviour calls, I rise,
And calmly do my best;
Leaving to Him, with silent eyes
Of hope and fear, the rest.

I step, I mount where He has led;
Men count my haltings o’er;—
I know them; yet, though self I dread,
I love his precept more.

Music (C) James Walton 2017
