Jenn Bostic – Jealous of the angels


We had Jenn Bostic’s mournful yet hopeful number, Jealous of the Angels, as the processional at the funeral of a young neighbour this week.  It’s a breathtakingly beautiful piece, which matches deep grief with hope of songs around the throne of God.  The song ends with a few hallelujahs, which is a good place to start a funeral service.  The words of Christ “All who believe in me will live, even though they die” sound more alive after a few really heart-felt hallelujahs. Watch out for the inscription on the base of Jenn’s dad’s gravestone. He’s the man about whom she wrote her song.
