Description/Remarks

Commissioned for the choir of men and boys at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco. The primary text is taken from one of John Donne’s magnificent sermons in which he contrasts his characterization of the earthly life with his vision of heaven. The movement from earth to heaven is dazzlingly expressed by Halley through harmonic progressions and associations, and fluid ascending and descending lines.

Texts

Bring Us, O Lord God

Words: John Donne and Isaac Watts 

Bring us, O Lord God,
at our last awakening into the house and gate of heaven,
to enter into that gate and dwell in that house,
where there shall be no darkness nor dazzling, but one equal light;
no noise nor silence, but one equal music;
no fears nor hopes, but one equal possession;
no ends nor beginnings, but one equal eternity;
in the habitations of Thy glory and dominion world without end.

 -          John Donne
 

The sure provisions of my God
Attend me all my days;
Oh, may thy house be my abode
And all my works be praise.
There would I find a settled rest,
And gaze on thee alone;
No more a stranger or a guest,
But like a child at home.

-    Isaac Watts
