If This Is the Fast (Then Our Light Shall Break Forth)
Words: Isaiah 58:6-8a, Larry E. Schultz
Music: Larry E. Schultz
This text encouraging social justice and ministry is from the Hebrew Scriptures. In Christian tradition it is expressed on Ash Wednesday, though its message is meaningful anytime and for persons of any or no faith tradition.
Though the congregation simply echoes the soloist (and may not need a printed part), the congregational "echoes" are provided with purchase for printing in worship guides.
This congregational song is purchased instead of licensed. Copies for soloist, pianist, and optional chime-tree player should be purchased for performance.
