This is my own personal “pictures at an exhibition” that came to me as I processed the spring of 2020.  Here’s the map:

Hymn            Come Down, O Love Divine                                        

1 Come down, O Love divine,
Seek thou this soul of mine,
And visit it with thine own ardor glowing;
O Comforter, draw near,
Within my heart appear,
And kindle it, thy holy flame bestowing.

2 O let it freely burn,
Till earthly passions turn
To dust and ashes in its heat consuming;
And let thy glorious light
Shine ever on my sight,
And clothe me round, the while my path illuming

3   Let holy charity 
Mine outward vesture be
And lowliness become my inner clothing. 
True lowliness of heart,   
Which takes the humbler part                           
And o’er its own shortcomings weeps with loathing

4  And so the yearning strong,
With which the soul will long,
Shall far out pass the power of human telling;
For none can guess its grace,
Till Love create a place
Wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.

Anthem          The U.S. National Anthem                                                                     Francis Scott Key

 Sung by Redeemer choir member Mary Ann Ziegler                       
State House of Massachusetts, March 9, 2015

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
