Welsh Hymn Tune Prelude: Rhosymedre ("Lovely") Ralph Vaughan Williams
Communion Op. 8 Louis Vierne
Carl G. Gläser, arr. by L. Mason, adapted
Supreme in wisdom as in power,
The Rock of Ages stands;
Canst thou not search His word, and trace
The working of His hands?
He gives the conquest to the meek,
Supports the fainting heart;
And courage in the evil hour
His heavenly aids impart.
Mere human energy shall faint,
And youthful vigor cease;
But those who wait upon the Lord
In strength shall still increase.
They, with unwearied step, shall tread
The path of life divine;
With growing ardor onward move,
With growing brightness shine.
English Melody, arr. by F. W. Root
The God who made both heaven and earth
And all that they contain
Will never quit His steadfast truth
Nor make His promise vain.
The poor and all oppressed by wrong
Are saved by His decree;
He gives the hungry needful food
And sets the captive free.
By Him the blind receive their sight,
By Him the fallen rise;
With constant care, His tender love
All human need supplies.
God is our refuge and defense,
In trouble our unfailing aid;
Secure in His omnipotence,
What foe can make our heart afraid?
There is a river pure and bright,
Whose streams make glad the heavenly plains;
Where, in eternity of light,
The city of our God remains.
Built by the word of His command,
With His unclouded presence blest,
Firm as His throne the bulwarks stand;
There is our home, our hope, our rest.
Marche-Sortie Théodore Dubois
