Jesus blood never failed me yet: a new year reflection and prayer

For New Years Eve this year, I intend to have a time of silent reflection and prayer. To look back on the year that has passed, and God's faithfulness in it. And to look forward to another year of his faithful love.

I'm thinking of using Gavin Bryar's minimalist orchestral piece "Jesus blood never failed me yet" to accompany and focus the time.
The original (1971) is about 25 minutes, the extended version 74mins (1993). I like the discipline of the hour (and it finishes with Tom Waits!), and may play the Jesus film silently in the background.

Anyway, here is a five minute condensed version to whet your appetite.
