My Heart Ever Faithful

The song “My Heart Ever Faithful” from J. S. Bach’s Cantata No. 68 has been special to me for many years. In college, I sang it at a joint senior recital with Patrick the same night we announced our engagement. These lyrics represented a beautiful promise set in motion as we began our lives together.

My heart ever faithful, Sing praises, be joyful, Thy Jesus is near;
Away with complaining, Faith ever maintaining, My Jesus is here;
My heart ever faithful, Sing praises, be joyful, Thy Jesus is here!

Once in a while, a vocal student of mine will work on this selection. Still today, these lyrics speak so simply and clearly to me. Nothing life throws at me can undo me if I will keep these truths in the forefront of my heart and mind. Be faithful! Sing His praises! He is near!
