Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

The dominant thought in this refrain is that all who have been baptized have been “reclothed with our Lord Jesus Christ.” Notice how Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 26, Question and Answer 70 points to our being “sanctified…to be members of Christ, so that more and more we become dead to sin and live holy and blameless lives,” and Belgic Confession, Article 34 speaks in Pauline terms, telling us that God is “clothing us with the new self and stripping off the old self with its practices.

A Prayer to be Clothed with Christ
O God, overflowing fountain of goodness, clothe us with our Lord Jesus Christ. Clothe us with compassion, kindness, and humility. Clothe us with gentleness, patience, and forbearance. Clothe us with a forgiving heart. Clothe us with a loving spirit. Clothe us with our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray in his name. Amen.

Composer Information

Judy Hylton taught Music Theory for 37 years at the Clackamas Community College, Oregon City, Oregon, and has also been a long time church musician.  She developed and published two theory texts and accompanying workbooks, and though retiring in 2006, continues to offer private theory lessons from her Portland, Oregon home. Oregon Catholic Press (based in Portland) contacted her to provide accompaniments for several of their hymns; she wrote (7/22/2014):   “In 1990, OCP began publishing liturgical music in Spanish.  I think their main focus was the creation of a Spanish-Catholic hymnal (Flor y Canto).  They asked me to write some keyboard arrangements to accompany various hymns.  In all, I did forty-nine.”
