O Day of God Draw Nigh
« on: November 19, 2023, 16:38:59 pm »
Dear friends and forumites,

 A tune entitled "St. Michael" from the Geneva Psalter (compiled 1551),
has the following words which are so very pertinent today. . . a song for today!  

O Day of God Draw Nigh

 
O day of God, draw nigh in beauty and in power,
Come with thy timeless judgment now to match our present hour.

 
Bring to our troubled minds, uncertain and afraid,
The quiet of a steadfast faith, calm of a call obeyed.

 
Bring justice to our land, that all may dwell secure,
And finely build for days to come foundations that endure.

 
Bring to our world of strife thy sovereign word of peace,
That war may haunt the earth no more, and desolation cease.

 
O day of God, draw nigh as at creations birth;
Let there be light again, and set thy judgments on the earth.

 
Words by R B Y Scott, 1937
Music Geneva Psalter   1551
