The Rev’d Benjamin Straley is rector of S. Stephen’s Church in Providence, former organist of Washington National Cathedral, and a noted concert organist who performed here in 2020. He wrote this song of praise for the Cathedral, and our choir had the honor of premiering it while singing there in July, 2019. His tempo marking is “with much verve,” so listen once to the refrain and then help us make a joyful noise to God!

Words from Psalm 122
I was glad when they said unto me: we will go into the house of the Lord.

Peace be within thy walls, and plenteousness within thy palaces.

Communion Anthem The Road Home Stephen Paulus (1949-2014)
Text by Michael Dennis Browne
Tell me where is the road I can call my own,
That I left, that I lost, so long ago?
All these years I have wandered, oh, when will I know
There’s a way, there’s a road that will lead me home?
After wind, after rain, when the dark is done,
As I wake from a dream in the gold of day
Through the air there’s a calling from far away,
There’s a voice I can hear that will lead me home.
Rise up. follow me, come away is the call,
With love in your heart as the only song;
There is no such beauty where you belong,
Rise up, follow me, I will lead you home.
