Apartment Sessions: Season 3 – No Miracle (Susan Gascho-Cooke)


I have only tears to baptize,only fumbling hands to bless.One little fishand a handful of crumbs,I have waited here …no miracle comes.Your body is tired,my spirit is weak.You ask me to pray,I ask your forgiveness.If Heaven proves falseI promise that wewill rival that feast inmy kitchen.We’ll fry bitter onionsin the fat of the land.We’ll toast the strange brewof time and neglectturning to wine ourown water and weedsand hide in the truthof the vigil.Oh the human heartinsatiable is,and I didn’t know…oh I didn’t know…The human heartinsatiable is,and I didn’t know…oh I didn’t know!Did I lead you where youwould never have gone?Did I find you whereyou already were?Like Hansel and Gretelwe are hungry and lost,For we squander our breadon the journey.And then you flash megreen irises,sweet as a wink.Mine swim in their ownsalty brine.We are just babiesbeneath all the years,so fat with such empty bellies.Oh the human heartinsatiable is,and I didn’t know…oh, I didn’t know…The human heartinsatiable is,and I didn’t know…oh I didn’t know!I have only tears to baptize,only fumbling hands to bless.One little fishand a handful of crumbs,I am waiting herefor a miracle …come.

my only question for a lot of these videos is how you can get a vibraphone or other mallet instrument into the apartment??

This is lovely. I googled "Susan Gascho-Cooke," and she appears to be a pastor in a Mennonite church in Lancaster, PA? I wonder how she comes to be playing with a bunch of 20-somethings in a Brooklyn apartment…
