Hymn 473 – Lift High the Cross – Trinity Episcopal Church – Fredonia, NY

Recessional Hymn 473: Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim till all the world adore his sacred name. Led on their way by this triumphant sign, the hosts of God in conquering ranks combine. Each newborn servant of the Crucified bears on the brow the seal of him who died. O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree, as thou hast promised, draw the world to thee. So shall our song of triumph ever be: praise to the Crucified for victory.

Gloria in Excelsis Deo – Glory to God in the Highest – Trinity Episcopal Church Choir – Fredonia, NY

When a church choir sings, the choir doesn’t simply sing, the choir prays. “Gloria in Excelsis Deo” (Latin for “Glory to God in the Highest”) is the hymn of Great Praise to God used in the Catholic Mass and Divine Services of the Anglican and Episcopal Church and many other Christian churches. The text of the song brings to mind the words said by the angels as part of the announcement of the birth of Jesus to the shepherds in the field. Luke 2:14.
