“Look Upon Me; Forgive and Purify My Heart.”
The words “dearest Jesus” came easily to the introductory measures of this lovely and moving aria, setting the theme and tone for the entire piece. The result is a thoughtful song matching almost any sermon theme; yet it seems especially poignant in the Easter season, as the singer considers the denials of Peter, and then reflects on his or her personal life under those difficult circumstances when one’s faith is severely tested. The lyrics move ahead with a deep expression of longing – longing to be a faithful follower with the strength of true honesty. It thus follows naturally to a fervent request for forgiveness and the desire to be one with the Savior.
