A setting of O filii et filiæ. Perfect for those low-choir-attendance weeks after Easter! The organ accompaniment is especially nice. Unison with organ.
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
O sons and daughters, let us sing!
The King of Heaven, the glorious King,
Over death today rose triumphing.
When Thomas first the tidings heard,
How they had seen the risen Lord,
He doubted the disciples’ word.
“My piercèd side, O Thomas, see;
My hands, My feet, I show to thee;
Not faithless but believing be.”
No longer Thomas then denied;
He saw the feet, the hands, the side;
“Thou art my Lord and God,” he cried.
How blessed are they who have not seen,
And yet whose faith has constant been;
For they eternal life shall win.
