Offertory: “The Shepherds Sing” – Bob Chilcott
Joseph Garate; tenor soloist
The shepherds sing, and shall I silent be? My God, no hymn for thee?
My soul’s a shepherd too; a flock it feeds of thoughts and words and deeds.
Thy pasture is Thy word: the streams, Thy grace enriching all the place.
Shepherds and flock shall sing, and all my powers outsing the daylight hours.
Then we will sing and shine on our own day, and one another pay.
His beams shall cheer my breast, and both so twine
Till even his beams sing, and my music shine.
–Text by George Herbert (1593-1633)
