Description/Remarks


PEL2014 Oculi Omnium - 'The Eyes of All Wait Upon Thee, O Lord' was created by Paul Halley for The Chapel Choir of The University of King's College, Halifax, where Halley is Director of Music. From The Grace Before Meals from the Statutes of King's College 1803, the text invokes Psalm 145, verses 16 and 17 with words of expectancy and gratitude. Lush and ethereal, this short work finds use as a grace, an invocation or an introit, in Advent or any season of the year. A work that is lovely in its simplicity.

Text and Translation

Oculi Omnium

Words:
from The Grace Before Meals
(Psalm 145: 16&17 and The Statutes of King’s College, 1803)    

Oculi omnium ad te spectant, Domine:
Tu das illis escam tempore opportune.
Aperis manum tuam,
et imples quicquid vivit benedictione tua.
Miserere nobis, quaesumus, Domine;
tuisque donis, quae tua benignitate percepturi, benedicito
per Christum Dominum nostrum.

Amen.

Translation:

The eyes of all wait upon thee, O Lord.
Thou givest them their meat in due season.
Thou openest thine hand,
and fillest all things living with plenteousness.
Have mercy upon us, we beseech thee, O Lord;

and bless these thy gifts which we are about to receive
by thy bountiful goodness,

through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
