Description

2-part chorus (Trebles and Men) with organ and optional descant.  What a delicious setting of this text! Ron Martin incorporated this little anthem into his Mag and Nunc in D (for St. Paul's). As a two-parter, this gem it can't be beat. What? Your choir doesn't enjoy changing time signatures? Oh, give it a try! You won't regret it. Great for anytime of year!

Father, we praise You, now the night is over;
Active and watchful, stand we all before Thee;
Singing, we offer, prayer and meditation;
Thus we adore Thee.

Monarch of all things, fit us for Thy mansions;
Banish our weakness, health and wholeness sending;
Bring us to Heaven, where Thy saints united
Joy without ending.

All holy Father, Son and equal Spirit,
Trinity bless├Ęd, send us Thy salvation;
Thine is the glory, gleaming and resounding
Through all creation.
