Evensong at Christ Church

The boys' choir of Christ Church and congregation sang this hymn by Jan Struther (1901 - 1953) set to a traditional Irish ballad tune.
  • Here is the last stanza, a favorite of my family's:
Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,
Whose voice is contentment, whose presence in balm,
Be there at our sleeping, and give us we pray,
Your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day.
