I hope this works! If it does please give it a listen all the way through at least once.
O GOD THOU ART THE FATHER.This is a very haunting song to me . I've included some of the history of the song to show that it should be public domain. It is on an album I have called Irish Hymns.
Enjoy and let me know what you think. AL
Columba is for ever associated with Iona where in 563 he established a Celtic monastery that came to be a light in the Dark Ages. Of princely Scots-Irish background and notable for earlier establishing Christian centres in Ireland, he is thought to have left Ireland, with 12 followers, as a result either of political pressure or simply as some kind of penance. Iona became famous as a sanctuary, as a school for scholars, as a centre for the production of illuminated manuscripts, and above all for its missionary outreach – the formidable Columba himself penetrating to the heartland of the Northern Picts in what is Inverness. Many monks of Iona were to travel to England and across to the continent, e.g. St. Gall in Switzerland and Bobbio in Italy, spreading the Gospel. Though his fame is in part due to Adomnan’s biography, there is little doubt that Columba is the most recognisable and notable figure in early Christianity in the land. Two hymns, Christ is the world’s redeemer and O God, Thou art the Father, attributed to him, express the distinctive Christ-centred theology, with its quality of universalism and its resonance with nature, that is characteristic of Celtic monasticism and that still has much appeal today. He died in 597 in the midst of copying Psalm 34.
When the Power of Love overcomes The Love of Power the world will be a better place.
