Prelude Sunday at 11:00: Listen Sweet Dove by Grayson Ives (1593-1633)
Listen sweet Dove unto my song,
And spread thy golden wings in me;
Hatching my tender heart so long,
Till it get wing, and flie away with thee.
Such glorious gifts thou didst bestow,
That th’ earth did like a heav’n appeare;
The starres were coming down to know
If they might mend their wages, and serve here.
The sunne, which once did shine alone,
Hung down his head, and wisht for night,
When he beheld twelve sunnes for one
Going about the world, and giving light.
Lord, though we change, thou art the same;
The same sweet God of love and light:
Restore this day, for thy great name,
Unto his ancient and miraculous right.
Proper Communion Sunday at 11:00 a.m.: Factus est repente
Suddenly, a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, in the place where they were sitting, alleluia; and they were filled with the Holy Spirit, and announced the great things God had done, alleluia, alleluia.
Communion 2, Sunday at 11:00 a.m.: If Ye Love Me Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)
If ye love me, keep my commandments.
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,
that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth.
