All the Might of Darkness

The image for this *’zipper’ song was born one starry night at Voice Camp when the dark sky had a huge power and weight to it. I love the idea of being able to harness all that velvety black darkness and transform it into a wish or prayer.

*you can replace the word peace with another suitable word to make subsequent verses. For a climate change action song you could change the words to ‘give us grace enough to change’


Bluesey, rolling


A B structure; 8 bars of SATB; can replace the word peace with, for instance, ‘hope’, ‘love’ or ‘grace’

If all the might of darkness were pressed into a prayer
