Other Info: How Can I Tell Of Such Love To Me? was commissioned in 2007 by The Britten Pears Chamber Choir and first performed in St Margaret's Church, Ipswich. The beautiful words are by the late Reverend Catherine Hooper who was tragically killed in a fatal car crash in 1999 along with two other clergy in the North East of England.  The Reverend Catherine Hooper was in the first group of women to be ordained as priests in the Church of England in 1994.

 

 

 

How can I tell of such love to me? You made me in your image
and hold me in the
palm of your hand, your cords of love, strong and fragile as silk
bind me and hold me.
Rich cords, to family and friends.
music and laughter echoing in memories,
light dancing on the water, hills rejoicing.
Cords that found me hiding behind carefully built walls and let me out,
love that heard my heartbreak and despair and rescued me,
love that overcame my fears and doubts and released me.
The questions and burdens I carry you take,
to leave my hands free - to hold yours and others,
free to follow your cords as they move and swirl in the breeze,
free to be caught up in the dance of your love,
finding myself in surrendering to you.
How can I tell of such love? How can I give to such love?
I am, here am I.
