Love Vast As the Ocean
The tune DIM OND JESU by Welsh-American composer Robert Lowry appeared in older Welsh hymnals paired with the text, “Praise the Lord, ye heav’ns adore Him.” Sometime in the early 1900’s, it was also paired with a William Rees text, “Here is Love Vast as the Ocean.” Karen has lifted up her own Welsh ancestry by arranging this lovely, lyrical tune for handbells. It is appropriate for worship and also provides a quiet change of pace in concert settings. If desired it may be played along with a 36 string harp, which has a separate but compatible score. 46 measures. Key of G Major.
