It’s after 5:00pm on a Friday. We made it through the first full week of classes here at JBU. The Cathedral Choir just left for their annual Spring retreat. In a few hours, they will be immersed in music, working hard to be ready for their Spring Break tour. Syllabi shock has set in for most of the students passing through the lobby. The music office has already dealt with its fair amount of scheduling mishaps and near nervous breakdowns. Anxiety is crouching around every corner.
But today, we choose peace. Join us in singing this hymn as a prayer for our semester. Chart and compass come from Thee. Amen.
Jesus, Savior, pilot me
Over life’s tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll,
Hiding rock and treacherous shoal.
Chart and compass come from Thee;
Jesus, Savior, pilot me.
