Description

SATB Choir and Organ. A beautifully crafted anthem in a typically English style. Not difficult and especially effective. The text is by John Greenleaf Whittier.

O Love! O Life! Our faith and sight
Thy presence maketh one,
As through transfigured clouds of white
We trace the no,Onday sun.

So, to our mortal eyes subdued,
Flesh-veiled, but not concealed,
We know in Thee the fatherho,Od (parentho,Od))
And heart of God revealed.

We faintly hear, we dimly see,
In differing phrase we pray;
But, dim or clear, we own in Thee
The light, the truth, the way!

Our friend, our brother, and our Lord,
What may Thy service be?
Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word,
But simply following Thee.

Thy litanies, sweet offices
Of love and gratitude;
Thy sacramental liturgies,
The joy of doing go,Od.

O Love! O Life! Our faith and sight

As through transfigured clouds of white
We trace the no,Onday sun.

So, to our mortal eyes subdued,
Flesh-veiled, but not concealed,
We know in Thee the fatherho,Od (parentho,Od))
And heart of God revealed.

We faintly hear, we dimly see,
In differing phrase we pray;
But, dim or clear, we own in Thee
The light, the truth, the way!

Our friend, our brother, and our Lord,
What may Thy service be?
Nor name, nor form, nor ritual word,
But simply following Thee.

Thy litanies, sweet offices
Of love and gratitude;
Thy sacramental liturgies,
The joy of doing go,Od.
