Serve the Coming Days
Commissioned for a Sesquicentennial celebration of a Presbyterian Church, this setting is based on the hymn tune TUOLUMNE, which is by the composer of this piece. The text is from George Briggs (1875-1959). The bells play at intervals throughout the work. The text begins: Our Father, by whose servants this church was built of old, people with blessings manifold, for your unfailing mercies, far strewn along our way, with all who passed before us, we praise your name today.
