A simple tune emerges from the silence. The music grows. The vibrant city is being rebuilt. We hear the rhythms of the second line. The musicians are returning to Jackson Square. This time, to celebrate new life!
Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy grace;
streams of mercy, never ceasing,
call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I'm fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.
