Music Notes

Hymn 135: Songs of Thankfulness and Praise

This hymn is one of the few that mentions the story of the wedding at Cana, which is our Gospel lesson for today. It is also an excellent summary of all the themes of Epiphany, which means to show plainly or “make manifest;” so, this hymn repeats the word “manifest” in every verse. The first three stanzas by Christopher Wordsworth describe the star leading the Wise Men, Jesus’ baptism, the wedding at Cana, healings, and Jesus’ temptation. F. Bland Tucker added the last verse, bringing the hymn to the mountain of the Transfiguration, so the hymn spans all of Epiphanytide. --Donna Wessel Walker

Draw Us In the Spirit's Tether (Friedell)

Harold Friedell (1905-1958) was organist-choirmaster at St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York City from 1946 to 1958. This morning's anthem originally was composed as a communion hymn for Pentecost Sunday. Its text by Thomas Dearmer (1867-1936) connects us with the disciples who gathered with Christ at the table (Matthew 18:20). We are joined by a “tether,” an appropriate image of the workings of the Holy Spirit linking Christians of every time and place at the Lord’s table. --Dennis Powers
