A text that expresses the vast nature and inexplicable power of God’s loving grace is set to a new hymn tune, the aptly named COSMOS. The melody moves fluidly and is easily memorized. A standard hymn version with four-part voicing is also included in the octavo. A great way to share the mystery of Christmas!
