God Is My Soul

Oh, God is my soul,
My soul is my God,
My heart I lay open
To all creatures as love.

– John Diamond, M.D.

Commentary: Although most of Dr. Diamond’s lilts consist of musical settings of pre-existent poems, sometimes he reverses the role and sets words to pre-existent melodies. Here the music is based on the Faith motif from Richard Wagner’s opera Parsifal, the power of which reinforces the message of the inspirational text.
