Promenade on Nicaea    June Nixon (b. 1942)

Opening Hymn 362 vv. 1 & 2    Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!    Nicaea

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee,
casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
which wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.

Sequence Hymn 367 vv. 1 & 3   Round the Lord in glory seated    Rustington

Round the Lord in glory seated,
cherubim and seraphim
filled his temple, and repeated
each to each th’alternate hymn:
“Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven,
earth is with its fullness stored;
unto Thee be glory given,
Holy, holy, holy, Lord.”

“Lord, thy glory fills the heaven,
earth is with thy fullness stored;
unto thee be glory given,
holy, holy, holy Lord.”
Thus thy glorious Name confessing,
with thine angel hosts we cry
“Holy, holy, holy,” blessing
thee, the Lord of hosts Most High.

Offertory Anthem      Lord, lead us still    Johannes Brahms  (1833-1897)
Words: Helen A. Dickinson, 1916
Sung by the Adult Choir

Along the varied paths of life,
Through hours of joy and sorrow keen,
In grim temptation’s mortal strife,
In doubt or confidence serene,
Lord, lead us still, O lead us still.

Through all the changes of the years,
Whate’er of good or ill betide,
In laughter gay or bitter tears,
O keep us ever at thy side;
Lord, lead us still, O lead us still.

And when at last the tale is told,
The vict’ry won by thy good grace,
May we thy glory, Lord, behold,
In that blest homeland see thy face;
Lord, lead us still, O lead us still.

Sanctus S128    William Mathias (1934-1992)

Closing Hymn 371 vv. 1 & 3   Thou, whose almighty word    Moscow

Thou, whose almighty word
Chaos and darkness heard,
And took their flight;
Hear us, we humbly pray,
And where the Gospel day
Sheds not its glorious ray,
Let there be light!

Holy and blessed three,
Glorious Trinity,
Wisdom, love, might;
Boundless as ocean’s tide,
Rolling in fullest pride,
Through the world far and wide,
Let there be light!

Voluntary     All glory be to God on high, BWV 715    Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
