A Tribute to the Amasi Trio

Heed Wise The Muse

Heed wise the Muse, your counsel of soul
God’s blessings to mark your goal
Another’s time and glory
And now ‘tis my story
Others have walked in the sun
My time has now just begun
Words of knowing within my heart
From this joy I shall newly start
Another’s creation in celebration
And I God’s eternal revelation
The plea from grace now known
I in gratitude for creation shown
The sculptor’s hand
In God’s command
Line and form to reveal
God’s beauty constant and real
Spectrum of color from a palette divine
Immortal the quest this moment be mine
The artist’s unveiling, the poet’s word
And the music, the music, to be ever heard
Heed wise the Muse, your counsel of soul
God’s blessings to mark your goal.

Self-Portrait Hesitating Between Painting and Music, Angelica Kauffman, (1741-1807), 1791.


  1. A most glorious evening of music. The Master's Touch, Paul Liljestrand touched me most personally.

    The Amasi Trio presented a program of music that took one from the passions of the parlor to the grace of green pastures.
