Based on Psalm 55(54), this piece was written in honor of Saint Oscar Romero and inspired by the incredible resilience of the Salvadoran people. The powerful text is completely bilingual and works well in English, Spanish, or a combination of the two languages. It pairs beautifully with the texture and dynamics of the composition to form a prayerful piece that expresses both the despair and hope of life and faith.
