The Day You Gave Us, Lord, Is Ended (Gather Australia 539)

Some hymns sound more dated than others. This one, with it’s Sitz im Leben fully in the British Empire of the Victorian age, seems more dated than most.

This one has a text by John Ellerton and is set to ST CLEMENT by Clement C. Scholefield.

Hymnary has chapter and verse on lyrics, sheet music and hymnals in which it appears (216!).

My BIAB backing is on the harp.
