Music Notes

Hymn 655: O Jesus, I Have Promised to Serve Thee

John Bode (1816-1874), an English priest, wrote this text for his children's confirmation in the late 1860's; it has since become popular in a variety of English hymnals. In it we confirm our promise to follow Jesus, but not plaintively like Peter in today's Gospel lesson. Rather, in this hymn we rejoice in Jesus' promise to draw us to himself: our promise relies on him, not on our efforts or supposed sacrifices. The lilting folk tune suits the childlike text. It comes from the Finnish Lutherans and is named Nyland for a province in Finland. --Donna Wessel Walker

Love Divine (Goodall)

Howard Goodall (b. 1958) studied music at Christ Church College, Oxford University. In January 2011, for his service to music education, Goodall was appointed a Commander of the British Empire in the Queen's New Year's Honours list. This morning's anthem was commissioned in 2000 to celebrate the new millennium. --Dennis Powers
