Charity Is like an Unsung Anthem

Music: Anh. 78: Partita "Wenn wir in höchsten Nöten sein".

Charity is like an unsung anthem
Harmonizing everything we see.
A gift can be a work of silent witness,
Remembrance, reverence, unsought forgiveness,
Intention, labor, time, philanthropy.
The worth is measured only by redemption,
Yielding nothing but the grace to be.
