“Lord, Thee I Love with All My Heart”

A Concordia Seminary, St. Louis choir, led by Director of Music Arts Dr. James F. Marriott, sings “Lord, Thee I Love with all My Heart” (Lutheran Service Book 708). Our series of hymn recordings celebrates the rich intersection of music and theology in our Lutheran heritage. “Lord Thee I Love with All My Heart” is a tremendous hymn of faith. We sing of our life and service in this world and our anticipation of Christ’s return! The three organ meditations between the stanzas interpret specific phrases of the hymn, as follows: 1) “to bear my cross and follow Thee”; 2) “that I may die unfearing”; and 3) “And then from death awaken me.” We invite you to meditate on the text with us or even to sing along as you listen!
