i wanted this to sound church-like.. does that make sense? :/ lately i've have had this poem in my head constantly.. especially the last part. so i made this song. not very happy with vocals so if anyone wants to sing it i will upload the instrumental.
lyrics:

Repeating rhythms, Tracing traditions
Stealing scales and cutting chords and making history of prehistoric patterns, coming back up and out of our shells,
from our hearts, whose every beat is a prayer
There's something I love, I swear something's there.
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer
a pattern, a prayer

    Went back & read the poem, and I like your selection of it, almost a new, simpler poem. (It reminds me of settings of the Requiem Mass - most composers select portions of the text rather than feeling the need to set it all. Fauré in particular wanted to compose a peaceful, restful Requiem full of assurance, and he selected text accordingly.) You've boiled the poem down to its beautiful essence & set it to music quite brilliantly. I love the contrast between the sedate, almost chant-like music breathing its (patterns &) prayer(s), and the "preacher" voice set within that broader stillness, the way everything we say about God/the divine/ultimacy is itself set within, encompassed by, transcended by, and made contingent on the greater Reality we can only point to.
    In other words, your song is amazing! :D

    Hey Wirrow... can you upload the instrumental/back-up vocal of this? I think the vocals are lovely, but I'll give them a try.

    Just an idea, That I probably wont be able to pull off myself, but if anyone has access to a chamber choir it would sound really nice with the music.

    I just wanted to say this is a beautiful song Wirrow! It is so to the point about the essence of the sermon, and I think Joe is as wrong about this needing a different reading as you are about your vocals. I love this!

    Wirrow, this is SO beautiful!! I'm happy with the vocals! ;)

    I would LOVE to sing this though... if you would post the instrumental... I've been super putting off NOT singing with all the lovely songs around here that I want to...
    I just don't have the confidence yet,
    BUT, I've started booking paid singing jobs, so, I figure it's 'bout time!!! ;D
