The Christ Hymn

A note from Jamie Howison: In my sermon for November 20, 2016 – “Reign of Christ” Sunday – I read a poem by Joel McKerrow, originally written as part of a poetry cycle for Alana Levandoski’s song “The Christ Hymn.” This video version of the song features the words of McKerrow’s poem, along with those contributed by Malcolm Guite, Scott Cairns, and Luci Shaw.

The first poem in the cycle is by Malcolm Guite, the second by Scott Cairns, the third is McKerrow’s, and the final one is by Luci Shaw. Malcolm and Joel each read their own pieces, while I served as reader for Scott Cairns’ poem, and Helen Kennedy read Luci Shaw’s.
