Prelude Trumpet Tune in D David N. Johnson
(Daniel 9:14b) The Lord our God is righteous in all His works which
He doeth: for we obeyed not His voice. Give glory to Thy Name, O
Lord: and deal with us according to the multitude of Thy mercies.
(Psalm 48:1) Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of
our God, in the mountain of His holiness.
The Sermon Hymn today, the chant Veni Creator Spiritus (Come, Holy Ghost), is attributed to the ninth century German Benedictine monk Rhabanus Maurus. It is associated with Pentecost (Whitsunday) and with ordinations.
(Psalm 137:1) By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we
wept, when we remembered Zion.
Anthem O Heavenly Grace In Holy Rite Descending
The text of the anthem (Hymn 188) was written in 1939 as a summary
of the Confirmation service by Robert Nelson Spencer (1877-1961),
Episcopal bishop of West Missouri (1930-1949) and a member of the
Joint Commission on the Revision of the Hymnal (The Hymnal 1940).
The tune was composed in 1927 by David Evans, a Welsh musician.
Postlude Komm, Gott, Schöpfer, heiliger Geist J. S. Bach
The Sermon Hymn today, the chant Veni Creator Spiritus (Come, Holy
Ghost), is attributed to the ninth century German Benedictine monk
Rhabanus Maurus. It is associated with Pentecost (Whitsunday) and
with ordinations. Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), German
Baroque composer and organist, wrote his setting of the chorale Komm, Gott Schöpfer with the tune in the soprano and afterwards in
the bass. This 16th century tune is a metrical adaptation by Martin
Luther of the chant Veni Creator Spiritus.
