A Baptismal Lullaby was commissioned by St. Matthew’s Cathedral congregation member Jonathan Terrell to commemorate the baptism of his son Henry George Arthur on January 14, 2006. Selected jointly by Mr. Terrell and the composer, the text includes some of the most loving and intimately familial passages from Psalms: “You formed my inmost being; You knit me in my mother’s womb.” As fragile and precious as newborn children appear to our eyes, so are we always in the eyes of God.
