Bulletin Epiphany IV Confirmation (blog edition) Feb. 3 2019

Visitors – Welcome!

Peace and joy in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Please advise us of your visit and ask for a “First Time Visitor Bulletin” which briefly explains the communion service.  Please join our church family in the Parish Hall after the service for fellowship, drinks, and food.


Holy Communion:  If you have been confirmed by a Bishop in Apostolic Succession, you are invited to receive the Blessed Sacrament.  If not, but are a Baptized Christian, please come to the Altar Rail for a blessing (simply cross your arms over your chest when the Celebrant approaches.)  If you have questions, please speak to the clergy.

Veni Creator Spiritus                                                                                Alec Wyton


(Hebrews 1:6) Worship Him, all ye His angels; (Psalm 97:8) Zion heard and was glad. The daughters of Judah rejoiced; because of they judgments, O Lord. (Psalm 97:1) The Lord reigneth, let the earth rejoice: Let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.


(Psalm 118:16-17) The right hand of the Lord is exalted: the right hand of the Lord doeth valiantly. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.

O Heavenly Grace In Holy Rite Descending                                       David Evans


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. Alec Wyton (1921-2007) created this meditative setting while organist-choirmaster at New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine.

The text of the anthem during the Offertory (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 by David Evans, a Welsh musician, in 1927.

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.
