• Devotional reading for Lent and early Easter

• Original hymn texts and meditations on existing hymns by students at the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest

These hymns and meditations are authentic and honest reflections of seminary students who have since become priests, musicians, and educators throughout the church. The collection is made up of selected works by students of Dr. Schulz-Widmar during his thirty-year teaching career at the Episcopal Theological Seminary of the Southwest (ETS), Austin, Texas.

It is organized for devotional reading for Lent and the early Easter season, although readings are not designated for specific days.

Russell Schulz -Widmar, recently retired ETS professor, is former president of the Hymn Society in the United States and Canada. As a member of the Standing Commission on Church Music of the Episcopal Church, he chaired the hymn music committee for The Hymnal 1982. He has lectured and published widely on contemporary hymn-writing in the United States.
