Representative Text

1 Lord of heaven and earth and ocean,
Hear us from thy bright abode;
While our hearts, with true devotion,
Own their great and gracious God.

2 Now with joy we come before thee,
Seek thy face, thy mercies sing;
Lord of life, of light and glory,
O, accept the praise we bring!

3 Health, and every needful blessing,
Unto us are daily shown;
And with joy thy love confessing,
Now we bend before thy throne.

Notes

Lord of heaven, and earth, and ocean. J. Crosse. [Holy Trinity.] Written for the Second Yorkshire Musical Festival, held at York on the 13th-16th of Sept., 1825, and first sung on that occasion by the Festival choir. On the 20th of Sept. it was printed in the Sheffield Iris newspaper, of which James Montgomery was the editor, together with an account of the Festival, and an estimate that £100,000 had been spent in one way and another in connection therewith; and of this £20,000 were expended in the purchase of Festival tickets. Crosse's hymn was included in Bickersteth's Christian Psalmody, 1833, No. 338, and subsequently in a great number of hymnbooks. Original text in Hymnal Companion.
