Peridans

7.7.7.5.

Feel free to print this music for use in your service, but please let me know when you do. Peridans originally sets the hymn below but may be used with any appropriate text that fits your need.

4. Faith will vanish into sight;
hope be emptied in delight;
love in heaven will shine more bight;
therefore give us love.

5. Faith and hope and love we see,
joining hand in hand agree,
but the greatest of the three,
and the best, is love.

6. From the overshadowing
of thy gold and silver wing
shed on us, who to thee sing,
holy, heavenly love.
-Christopher Wordsworth
1. Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost,
taught by thee we covet most,
of thy gifts at Pentecost,
holy heavenly, love.

2. Love is kind and suffers long,
love is meek and thinks no wrong,
love than death itself more strong;
therefore, give us love.

3. Prophecy will fade away,
melting in the light of day;
love will ever with us stay;
therefore, give us love.
