Michael and Mendelssohn

Anyone who knows me knows that I love all things German. Composers are no exception. Felix Mendelssohn composed some truly wonderful melodies in his lifetime, and when I wrote these words a few months ago, one of his melodies came to mind. The original was “Grant Us Thy Peace” or “Verleih uns Frieden”, and I think the words and music fit perfectly together.

Dearest Lord, With My Heart Full

And here is another two-for-one hymn, utilizing the same melody, with a bit different structure.
