This has very little to do with Robert Schumann, or Clara Schumann for that matter, but they're so awesome that we're starting with their picture.
I found a song in the Presby hymnal called Lord, Speak to Me that I Might Speak. The lyrics are from a woman named Frances Havergal (1836-1879), and the music is from Schumann. I love Schumann, but the melody was a little obscure and I didn't have the grit to lead it for a few weeks until we all picked it up; so I made up a new melody/chords, purposefully making it quite soft, almost as a whispered prayer. We didn't have mics, so no one could hear it, but it was cool just the same. The lyrics are great:
Later, we bookended a prayer about thankfulness for God's provision in unexpected places/ways/times/etc with 2 songs. We started with Thank You by Alanis, then did the extended prayer, then finished with a version of The Magnificat. This Alanis song is killer. "Thank you terror"? "Thank you nothingness"? Are you kidding me? So good.
