Today we share the title track from our latest CD, ‘Immeasurable’.
This work by Andrew Blyth, was written for Bandmaster William Flinn O.F. and the Pasadena Tabernacle Band. The featured tune, ‘Penlan’, was Bill’s mother’s favourite song. It is often used in a devotional context, but this setting is bright and positive in nature, rejoicing in the vast love of Jesus and of what he has in store for us; not only in our earthly life but also in the life to come. The third verse of the song, ‘In heavenly love abiding’, (S.A.S.B. 711) forms the basis of this festival prelude and the title is taken from line five.
Green pastures are before me
Which yet I have not seen;
Bright skies will soon be o’er me,
Where the dark clouds have been.
My hope I cannot measure,
My path to life is free;
My Saviour has my treasure,
And he will walk with me.
