The Hand of God Shall Hold You

I’ve blogged this before but I only did the refrain so I thought I do the whole thing in which it is made clear that this is a song for funerals.

The text for the refrain and first verse is by Marty Haugen who wrote the lovely melody and the second verse is In Paradisum. You’ll need a cantor for the verses.

The text is here and the sheet music can be purchased at GIA.
