The Conductor
by John Michael Talbot

Album: The Troubadour Years
by John Michael Talbot


The conductor stands before the orchestra
Poised with baton in hand
And the notes lie silent on the pages of the score
Waiting to be played by the band

CHORUS:
And the spirit of the symphony’s composer
Waits in notes upon the pages
And the knowledge and the skill of the conductor
Unlocks right interpretation

The conductor knows the whole orchestra
As each player knows the instrument he plays
And with wisdom calling forth performances
That surpass the finest of former days

And he knows when to fiercely command
Like a captain with his soldiers
And he knows when to be gentle as a lamb
Like a lover with his beloved

And Jesus is the conductor
And the church is an orchestra of God
And the liturgy we pray becomes a symphony
And the sacraments unlock the mystery of God
And the Spirit of the symphony’s composer
Waits in notes upon the pages
And the knowledge and the skill of the conductor
Unlocks right interpretation
