Hymn for deceased parishioners

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Hymn for deceased parishioners

Post by John Ainslie » Thu Nov 08, 2018 9:09 am

Some years ago, my then ex-Anglican parish priest brought to my attention a hymn in honour of deceased parishioners. We sang it each November for a number of years. It is from the New English Hymnal (208): I have changed the beginning to read 'In our day of remembrance' instead of 'In our day of thanksgiving'. Attached.

The given tune (originally in D-flat) works well. Or you can just fit the words into WAS LEBET, WAS SCHWEBET ('O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness').

Sadly, having downloaded the files I couldn't open them - or rather, when I did they just appeared as gibberish! :( :?
