Texts

At thy feet, O Christ, we lay

Spirit, Working in Creation

Spirit, working in creation,
bringing order out of strife,
come among God's gathered people,
giving harmony and life.
Spirit, speaking through the prophets
so the voice of God was heard,
come, inspire, alert your people
to this day's prophetic word.

Notes

Sometimes known as OMNI DIE, SUNRISE was first published in the 1768 Supplementum to the Luxembourg Kyriale. After its inclusion in Gesang und Gebetbuch (Trier, 1847), the tune gained popularity. SUNRISE attained its name because of its publication with William Bright's morning hymn "At thy feet, O Christ we lay" in Hymns Ancient and Modern Revised (1950).

A bar form (AAB) tune, SUNRISE is marked by a number of repeated tones. The active harmonization will delight choirs and challenge part-singing congregations. Sing stanzas 1 and 3 in unison with brisk accompaniment; sing stanza 2 in harmony unaccompanied.
