Song of the Man Born Blind

This song was written by American Roman Catholic liturgical musician and composer Bob Hurd (b 1950).  

It is based on John 9-10 and Psalm 23:1-2, and this is a very clear match for the readings of the 4th Sunday of Lent in Year A.

Downloadable sheet music is available for purchase from OCP.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Hurd. This has a 2/2 time signature, and was published in the key of Db.   In this key the first few notes are  E F FF ED A B c B.

The song was included in the collection "A Lenten Journey" which was released by Hurd Anawim (Barbara Bridge, John Gilb, Marie Hodgson and Dominic MacAller) in 2003.

The song has four verses, each four lines long. A rough outline is:
1  Once I was blind but now I see.
... Light in the darkness and sweet liberty.

2  Not in an instant, but through pain...

3. The Lord is my shepherd, leading me ...

4. Though this world may rage and terrorise ...
