Hymn 36

Horatius Bonar

Church of the ever-living God,
The Father’s gracious choice;
Amid the voices of this earth
How mighty is thy voice.

Thy words, amid the words of earth,
How noiseless and how pure;
Amid the hurrying crowds of time
Thy step how calm and sure.

Amid the restless eyes of earth
How steadfast is thine eye,
Fixed on the silent loveliness
That fills the morning sky.

Untiring praise we lift on high,
Unfaltering songs we sing,
Unending festival we keep
In presence of the King.

Hymn 261

Samuel Longfellow

One holy church of God appears
Through every age and race,
Unwasted by the lapse of years,
Unchanged by changing place.

From oldest time, on farthest shores,
Beneath the pine or palm,
One unseen presence she adores,
With silence or with psalm.

Her priests are all God’s faithful sons,
To serve the world raised up;
The pure in heart her baptized ones;
Love, her communion cup.


Offertoire sur les Grands Jeux by François Couperin
