Look Inside

This English cathedral-style anthem features a memorable tune accompanied by dramatic and thrilling organ writing. The full dynamic ranges of both the choir and the organ are used, yet careful use of unison, two-part, and four-part writing makes this majestic piece accessible to even modest-sized choirs. The lovely ancient text is most often associated with the Epiphany season but is useful year round.

The only Son, of Virgin born,
Came down to save a world forlorn;
His cross procured the life of heav’n
By water, Word, and Spirit giv’n.

From God on high He came to earth;
He took the form of man at birth,
Redeemed by death the world He made
And gives us joy that cannot fade.

Glide on, O glorious Sun, and bring
The gift of healing on Your wing.
On ev’ry sense Your light bestow;
Bless ev’ry creature here below.

Abide with us, O Lord, we pray;
The gloom of darkness chase away;
Your work of healing, Lord, begin,
And take away the stain of sin.

Lord, once You came to earth’s domain
And, we believe, shall come again;
Your people shield from sin and pain;
Extend Your great and glorious reign.

To You, O Lord, all glory be,
The source of all doxology;
    *For this Your blest nativity;
    *For this Your blest epiphany;
To God, whom all the hosts adore,
And Holy Spirit evermore. Amen.

* Optional texts may be used during the Christmas or Epiphany seasons.
