Music and Mission #57 - Thomas Muglia


On this episode of Music and Mission, watch Thomas Muglia perform his song “Stay with Me Lord” on this episode of Music and Mission. Based on the prayer by Padre Pio, "Stay with Me Lord" is a deeply human petition asking God to stay close to us.

 

Thomas Muglia discusses the origin of his song based on Padre Pio’s prayer, “Stay with Me Lord.” Padre Pio’s words are meant to be prayed after receiving the Eucharist, and Thomas was asked to write a song that would put those words to music for use after Communion. The song offers a beautiful setting for the prayer that asks Jesus for the grace to stay faithful to him.
