Even when it’s not shining…

Today, I’d like to share Kim Andre Arnesen’s choral piece, “Even When He Is Silent.” The text comes from words that were discovered at Auschwitz, etched on a wall by a Jewish prisoner. This performance is by the S:t Jacobs Vokalensemble.

Text:

I believe in the sun
I believe in the sun
Even when it’s not shining
Even when it’s not shining
Oh, shining
Oh, shining
I believe in the sun
I believe in the sun
I believe in the sun
I believe in the sun
I believe, I believe, I believe
I believe in love
I believe in love, I believe in love
In love
I believe in love (believe in love)
I believe in love (believe in love)
I believe (in love)
I believe (in love)
In love
Even when I
Even when I
Even when I feel it not
When I feel it not
I believe in God, in God
Even when (Even when) he is silent
He is silent
I believe (I believe)
I believe in God
When he is silent
When he is silent
When he is silent
When he is silent
