O Lord Most Holy

Sunday, November 12, 2006

I got to present the anthem for the second service in church today and I did Cesar Franck’s Panis Anglicus, the English version, or as I have found out, one of the English versions.

    O Lord most holy, O Lord most holy,
    O Loving Father would we be praising all way
    Help us to know Thee, know Thee and love Thee
    Father, Father, grant us Thy truth and grace
    Father, Father, guide and defend us

    Rule Thou our willful hearts,
    Keep Thee our wandering thoughts,
    In all our sorrows let us find our rest in Thee
    And in temptation hour, save through Thy mighty power
    Thine aid, O send us, hear us in mercy
    Show us thy favour, so shall we live and sing praise to Thee
It is good to sing to him. We need to cry out to him as much as we are undeserving of his love.
