Look Inside

David W. Rogner’s text is a warm telling of Jesus’ travels to Bethany—visiting Mary and Martha, His anointing, and His ascension—set for SATB and organ by Carl F. Schalk. This piece has themes of hope and comfort, vocation, and Christian life and service, and it may be particularly useful for Ascension, Proper 11C, and Holy Week.

O Jesus, Savior, stay with us
As once you did at Bethany,
Where Mary, Martha, Lazarus
Were blessed to share your company.
May we, like Martha, service give;
Like Mary, heed your words and live.

Lord, make the living of our days
An off’ring, beautiful and sweet.
Make every anthem that we raise
A rich anointing of your feet,
Due homage to our living Head,
Whose power calls to life the dead.

Near Bethany you went away,
Ascending to your heav’nly throne,
But blessed your followers, that they
Might have no fear of things unknown.
Abide with us, when night draws near;
Forever make your dwelling here.
