Marlborough

 

(11.10.11.10.)

Harmonized by Sullivan for inclusion in “Church Hymns with Tunes”, S.P.C.K., 1874.

1 O Strength and Stay, upholding all creation,
    Who ever dost Thyself unmoved abide,
  Yet day by day the light in due gradation
    From hour to hour through all its changes guide;

2 Grant to life’s day a calm unclouded ending,
    An eve untouched by shadows of decay,
  The brightness of a holy deathbed blending
    With dawning glories of the Eternal Day. Amen.

Translated by John Ellerton, 1826 - 93.
