Spirit of Life Project
Come join your voices in our Spirit of Life Project! Gather yourself, your family or whoever is sheltered with you (pets are welcome too!) and be a part of the singing community at UUCA. We’re joining all voices of all ages in the congregation singing of Spirit of Life. Your voice will be included in the congregation and choir voices as a whole, and your video will be featured in subsequent worship services.
Here’s how to do it:
First, check out Walter’s great video describing five guidelines for submitting video.
You can choose to submit a video of you and your family singing OR an audio-only. If you choose to do an audio-only, please send a picture so you can be included in the video.
Recording Spirit of Life
Have the music and/or words available. (See the words below.)
Click here for the hymn music.
Click here for the piano accompaniment.
If you choose to sing both a Spanish and English version, you’ll need to do 2 separate audio/video files.
Listen to the piano accompaniment on a device on headphones that you are NOT recording on. Note that there’s a 4-measure intro before the hymn starts.
Have someone video or record your singing from another device. Most devices won’t let you have headphones and record simultaneously. Point is, we want a recording of your voice only, not your voice and the accompaniment.
Words to Spirit of Life in Spanish and English:
Fuente de Amor, ven hacia mí.
Y al corazón, cántale tu compasión. Sopla al volar, sube en la mar; Hasta moldear la justicia de la vida. Arráigame, libérame,
Fuente de Amor, ven a mí, ven a mí.
Spirit of Life, come unto me.
Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion,
Blow in the wind, rise in the sea;
move in the hand, giving life the shape of justice.
Roots hold me close; wings set me free:
Spirit of life, come to me, come to me.
