Vaughan Williams (arr. Wagner): ‘The Call’ from Five Mystical Songs

Originally composed as a solo song for baritone and orchestra, the words of the anthem are by the 17th-century English poet George Herbert:

The Call

Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:
such a way as gives us breath;
such a truth as ends all strife;
such a life as conquers death.

Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:
such a light as shows a feast;
such a feast as mends in length;
such a strength as makes his guest.

Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:
such a joy as none can move;
such a love as none can part;
such a heart as joys in love.

Hymn 690: Guide me, O thou great Jehovah (Cwm Rhondda)
