track 2: music
Lyrically, this song does not add to the conversation of all saints and all souls; it just has a beautiful, transcendent quality that seems to fit. Don't you agree? By the way, this modern-day composer became one of my favorites listening to my son's highschool chorale sing this song.

track 3: prayer
We thank you, God, for the saints of all ages;
For those who in times of darkness kept
The lamp of faith burning;
For the great souls who saw visions of
Larger truth and dared to declare it;
For the multitude of quiet and gracious souls
Whose presence has purified and sanctified the world;
And for those known and loved by us,
Who have passed from this earthly fellowship
Into the fuller light of life with you.
