‘O’ Lord the gift to give

that I would aspire

to sing the anthem

with the parish choir.

Oh to hear them sing in harmony

is a joy I cannot measure

to join in joyful melody

it is a gift that I could treasure.

Such hymns there are

such songs

that rise up in the air

and inspire to adoration.

As they stand and sing

their voices fill the air

with a tapestry of sound

and love is founded there.

‘o’ Lord the gift to give

that I should aspire

to sing the anthem

with the parish choir.

W.R.Turner.
