The Rite Note- A Blog from the Balcony

Lenten Hymn Back story

One of the hymns you’ll be hearing and singing if you attend our 9:00 AM Sunday liturgies during Lent is “Lenten Days”, written by Annabelle (with a little help on the lyrics from yours truly) 3 or 4 years back at the request of Fr. Michael. Fr. wanted a “theme song” for Lent, and as Annabelle has graciously done in the past, she created the right melody – simple and easy to learn – and collaborated on the words to get the message across. Together they form the “right notes” for our Lenten liturgical rite:
“In these Lenten days we walk the road of grace.
In these Lenten nights we try to find our place.
We all share the longing; let us join in singing.
To our God come face to face.”

On another note, starting this Sunday you’ll notice that the Gloria and Alleluia are not sung or recited during Lent. We are in a somber time and the Church tries to reflect that with less of the joy of certain music.

Until next time, stay tuned!
Jim Guinasso, singer
