Precious in My Sight

Gregory Berg

PRECIOUS  IN  MY  SIGHT by Gregory Berg is a choral anthem commissioned by the Sanctuary Choir of Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church to honor the faithful service of Gladys Austgen, Director of Music from 1992-2018.

 

See, I have redeemed you.  I have called you by name.

You are mine.  You are precious, precious in my sight,

And I love you.

 

When you pass through the waters, I will be there,

Enfolding you in my tender care.

And when you walk through the fire,

You will be untouched by the flame.

For whatever assails you

My love remains the same.

 

See, I have redeemed you.  I have called you by name.

You are mine.  You are precious, precious in my sight,

And I love you.

Text based on Isaiah 43:1-2

But now thus says the Lord,
    he who created you, O Jacob,
    he who formed you, O Israel:
Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by name, you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you;
when you walk through fire you shall not be burned,
    and the flame shall not consume you.
