Voluntary    Be thou my vision    Scott Lamlein, 2014

Opening Hymn 372 vv. 1 & 2    Praise to the living God    Leoni

Praise to the living God!
All praisèd be his Name
who was, and is, and is to be
for ay the same.
The one eternal God
ere aught that now appears:
the first, the last, beyond all thought
his timeless years!

Formless, all lovely forms
declare his loveliness;
holy, no holiness of earth
can his express.
Lo, he is Lord of all.
Creation speaks his praise,
and everywhere above, below,
his will obeys.

Sequence Hymn 564 vv. 1 & 3   He who would valiant be ‘gainst all disaster    St. Dunstan’s

He who would valiant be
’gainst all disaster,
let him in constancy
follow the Master.
There’s no discouragement
shall make him once relent
his first avowed intent
to be a pilgrim.

Since, Lord, thou dost defend
us with thy Spirit,
we know we at the end
shall life inherit.
Then fancies flee away;
I’ll fear not what men say,
I’ll labor night and day
to be a pilgrim.

Offertory Anthem    A grateful heart    Mary Plumstead, 1977
Sung by the Youth Choir
Words: George Herbert (1593-1632)

Thou that hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, a grateful heart.
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if thy blessings had spare days:
But such a heart, whose pulse may be Thy praise.
Thou that hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, a grateful heart.

Voluntary    Fugue in C Major, BWV 545b    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
