lift up your heart...sursum corda,, is a preface prayer prior to sanctus sanctus sanctus Dominus Deus Sabaoth...Holy holy holy Lord God... the prayer is said by a holy Roman Catholic priest before the Consecration,(changing of bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Chrtist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Sursum Corda are latin words of reverence, but seem to be disregarded as such by Emerson. Please comment. Thank you, Kiro.
