Choir Immortal Love lyric John Greenleaf Whittier (excerpted); music Elizabeth Alexander
Janie Wulff, flute, Carol Harden, viola, Mary Bisson, horn, Richard Hopkins bassoon
Immortal love, forever full, forever flowing free.
Forever shared, forever whole, a never-ending sea.
Our outward lips confess the name all other names above,
but love alone knows whence it came and comprehendeth love.
Blow winds of love, awake and blow the mists of hate away,
Sing out, O Truth divine, and tell how wide and far we stray.
The letter fails, the systems fall, and every symbol wanes;
The Spirit overseeing all, Eternal Love, remains.
