The sixth of the seven letters of our Lord to the churches of Asia Minor. It is the only one of the seven letters where there is no word of admonition but only words of commendation and encouragement. I tried to reflect that by matching it to a joyous tune.

Babylon and the Bride

This song is based on the Revelation 18 & 19, about the fall of Babylon (i.e., the world as it is hostile to the Lord and the church) and the vindication of the Bride of Christ (i.e., the church). I set it to Genevan 68, the battle hymn of the Reformation. Psalm 68 in the Bible is about arising and putting to flight those who attack his people. It is a majestic tune.
