“Awake, My Heart, with Gladness”

A virtual choir of 32 faculty, students and families, and friends joined their voices to the opening hymn on Call Day 2020, “Awake, My Heart, with Gladness” (Lutheran Service Book 467, Stanzas 1-2, 5-7). One hundred and thirteen students received assignments and calls on Call Day, held April 28, 2020, as a virtual-only event because of the coronavirus pandemic. Our series of hymn recordings celebrates the rich intersection of music and theology in our Lutheran heritage. This hymn boldly proclaims the victory of Christ over Satan, sin and death. As the world was freshly facing the pandemic in 2020, the text of the hymn, the power of the music and the creative medium of the singing all spoke so powerfully to our Seminary community. That is no less true for all of us today. We invite you to meditate on the text with us or even to sing along as you listen.
