Sarah Hart’s Newest Album: An Ode to the Fruits of the Spirit

Sarah Hart - published on 06/01/16

"Til the Song is Sung" is a sure and beautiful companion along this earthly journey

Each of the ten titles feels less a song, and more a confession; an open letter from the heart of the composer.

There are no saints on earth.

This was a favorite line of St. Josemaría. Saints are found only in heaven. Our lives will present us myriad challenges; we will fall, we will get back up, and if we persevere, with God’s grace, we will get to heaven.

Our path to heaven is just that: a path. And I dare say that Sarah Hart’s Til the Song is Sung is a sure and beautiful companion along the journey, taking the fruits of the spirit as guide.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23)

From Vox Pacem:

“Each of the ten titles feels less a song, and more a confession; an open letter from the heart of the composer. In the song ‘Come Away’ (love), Sarah sings of what is most surprising about the recognition of love when it is uncovered in it’s truest form. In ‘Joy In These Bones’ (joy), the listener is privy to the heart of a girl who grew up listening to the melodies and rhythms found in the hills of Southeastern Ohio: it is a joyful romp through the theme of overcoming. The stunning ‘Because I Want An End’ (peace) is a convicting, honest statement on the human condition, set against the backdrop of a fallen world, and a longing for healing. And in the beautiful ‘Never Be Ashamed’ (faithfulness) (featuring Ike Ndolo), Hart relays an honest prayer that the world might not bury faith, but that courage and conviction would stand.

Til the Song is Sung is Sarah Hart’s ninth full-length album and is available on iTunes.
