Fourth Sunday of Easter
(“Good Shepherd” Sunday) – May 15
This is an arragement of a beautiful 19th century American folk melody called Resignation by the noted composer and music critic Virgil Thomsn (1896-1989). The words are Isaac Watt’s poetic setting of Psalm 23.
Fifth Sunday of Easter – May 22
Anglican Chant: Charles Stanford
Kristine Chaney, cantor
Originally composed as a solo song for baritone and orchestra, the words of the anthem are by the 17th-century English poet George Herbert:
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.
