During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Author: Jacques Berthier

Jacques Berthier (b. Auxerre, Burgundy, June 27, 1923; d. June 27, 1994) A son of musical parents, Berthier studied music at the Ecole Cesar Franck in Paris. From 1961 until his death he served as organist at St. Ignace Church, Paris. Although his published works include numerous compositions for organ, voice, and instruments, Berthier is best known as the composer of service music for the Taizé community near Cluny, Burgundy. Influenced by the French liturgist and church musician Joseph Gelineau, Berthier began writing songs for equal voices in 1955 for the services of the then nascent community of twenty brothers at Taizé.

Notes

Scripture References: st. = Luke 23:42 One of the robbers crucified with the Savior cried out, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom” (Luke 23:42). Jesus responded, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise" (v. 43). This humble plea of a sinner for divine mercy is all the more poignant today as our Savior in heaven continues to pray for his people. “Jesus, Remember Me” comes from the Taizé community, an ecumenical community in France with Reformed roots. In the Taizé tradition, short songs are often sung repeatedly with various descants (as here and at 312); others are canons (see 622). The Taizé and many other Christian communities and churches use this song as a meditative chant in communal prayers. The text and tune are from Music from Taizé (vol. 1, 1981), published by G.I.A. Publications, Inc. I Liturgical Use: Good Friday; as a prayer song in a meditative service. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
