Nothing Baptistic on this blog:
One of the advantages of this hymn is that it can be “recycled” with different lyrics for several feasts, such as Ascension, Pentecost, etc. This makes it easier for the choir and other involved musicians.
Losing this great hymn was one of the “hits” I took when leaving (?) the Anglican-Catholic world. Hopefully, like Bill Clinton’s Eucharistic Theology, this too can be fixed.
