Largo (from Sonata No. 2 in C minor) BWV 526/2 by Johann Sebastian Bach
Prelude by Théodore Dubois
Peter J. Henniker-Heaton
We cannot turn away from God
because, whichever way we face,
Spirit is there. In every place,
every direction, everywhere,
Spirit is there.
Whether we turn to left or right,
to north or south or east or west,
we meet with Love—and we are blessed.
Upward or down, below, above,
we meet with Love.
Whether we plunge to ocean trench
or plot our course for farthest space,
Love’s law controls. Whatever race
we enter toward whatever goals,
Love’s law controls.
Whether we build for centuries hence
or let tomorrow bound our aim,
God sets the pace. Always the same,
with instant and eternal grace,
God sets the pace.
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.
Arr. by William Cameron, 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.
Fugue in G minor BWV 542/2 by Johann Sebastian Bach
