A Melodic Setting Inspired by the Suscipe Prayer


"These Alone Are Enough" by Dan Schutte

Inspired by the famed Jesuit "Suscipe" prayer, Dan Schutte brings us a lyrical setting of the text that speaks of offering and receiving. In "These Alone Are Enough" we song of an emptying of all facets of self, asking only for the blessed love and grace from God. Recurring melodic motifs make the piece very accessible to the faithful in the pews. This piece is an excellent choice for presentation and preparation of the gifts, prayer and meditation.
