Inspired by Colossians 1:15–20, Rory offers us thought-provoking text and a haunting melody to plumb the depths of the many things Jesus Christ has done for us. The richness of the harmonic structure provides added interest to the listener as the cantor unfolds a litany of examples of Christ's love. The assembly joins in the refrain, solidifying the concept that it is God who endures, not those who are mighty on earth. The second reading for the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (July 10, 2016) is the text that sparked this piece. From the recording Christ the Icon (wlp 008300).
