A new piece setting a short letter from John to a fast-moving piano part. Minus the final line, the melody is entirely in whole steps.

Dear Friend Lyrics
Dear friend, I pray for your health. Even as your soul is getting along well. It gives me great joy. There’s no greater joy. I have no greater joy.

O my dear friend, you are faithful to the Name, and to my brothers and sisters, though they’re strangers to you, they know your love. I know your love.

I write to you. I don’t write to your friend who loves to be first. He will not welcome us, spreading malicious nonsense. So I will call attention, I will call attention. Dear Friend, do not imitate evil but what is good. It is from the Name.

I have much to tell you, but not with pen and ink. I’ll see you soon, face to face. I will see you soon.

Peace to you. Your friends here send their greetings. Greet my friends there by name.
