All rights # 201247 Performance NotesImagery/MeaningI based this sung on the much-loved entreaty by Saint Augustine ( 354 430 ) that comes from hisConfessions ( ca. 400 ) and sums up his travel toward conversion to Christ : former have I loved thee, OBeauty, always < solid > Ancient < /strong >, O < potent > beauty < /strong >, < impregnable > ever fresh < /strong > ; former have I loved It is a profound recognition of theperson south quest to encounter some ways, it is a entreaty that can alone be truly talk by people who have lived long enough, suffered enough, and come to understand that conversion to Christ is a retentive and arduous serve ofattraction and aversion. < /p > < p > 8 Yet its attract seems to go far beyond veterans of the spiritual life. HighlightsDepending on the liturgical situation, the song may be interpreted in a number of ways. It couldreflect halting recognition and prayer for God sulfur guidance, joyful toleration of one sulfur way toward God, or repentance and deeper adoption of the Gospel. Any of these could serve as authentic interpretationof the liturgical function will determine whether the piece is a solo, a communal sung or some othervariation. I recommend including fabrication singing, at least on the refrains, after the concluding verses. Verses one and two center upon the have of the one beg, saying, I have been caught up inthe attractions and distractions of life. < /p > < p > 9 I lost myself in them because I fled pain and suffer. here, theone praying offers a aspirant recognition of God sulfur fidelity. It ends with a prayer that God reveal the truthand meaning of life. still, the person s focus remains on personal three begins to become more relational as the one beg addresses God from the experienceof being lost in the brilliant populace : I could not recognize you as the giver of all wonder. I was soenamored of it all ! The refrain becomes more affecting as the one beg reaches out, straining to findlife in four takes this all a step further and acknowledges that God has been active agent within the person swanderings. much like the prodigal son coming to his senses, the one pray discovers that amid thelonging for home and integrity, God was present all the time. < /p > < phosphorus > 10 here, the refrain begins to take on acharacter of praise and joyful recognition of the providential five is a hymn of praise to the creator and jesus, the one who saved and sanctified the life ofthe ones praying. In the same way, the abstain is a paean of praise that leads to the recognition of one scontinued dependence on the guiding deck of SuggestionsThe solid piece should build throughout. A soloist for verse one might join a humble group of singersfor verse two. Verses three and four might be divided between men and women singers. Verse fiveshould radiance with joyful cantabile by UsageThe liturgical use could determine when or if the assembly sings. just because the song is thereflection of a individual soul should not limit its use to a soloist south give of the song. < /p > < /div > < /p > < /div >
