AcWriMo 8 & #10eleven12: Leyton DCM

I completed this on Saturday, 10th November as my contribution to 10eleven12 but didn’t get a chance to transcribe it and upload it until today.

Words by Thomas Thurman:

Elijah thought he stood alone; you spoke of his mistake,
but took no form throughout the storm nor showed within the quake.
O Lord, whose peaceful whispering within the silence stirred
give now to those who bear your name an ear to hear your word.

You spoke to fishermen upon an uneventful day,
who left their nets without regrets and followed on the way;
O Lord of every working hour, whose voice the workers heard,
give now to those who bear your name an ear to hear your word.

When Mary wept for all you were and all that you became,
she thought you were the gardener until you spoke her name;
O Lord of happy endings, unexpected and absurd,
give now to those who bear your name an ear to hear your word.

The whole lot is CC BY-SA. Here’s more about why. That means you don’t need to give me any money to use this hymn: you just have to make sure Thomas Thurman and I are both attributed, and if you make any derivative works (recordings et cetera) they need to also be released under the same license.

That said, if you’ve been enjoying my hymns, I’d love it if you could make a donation to the organ fund at St Andrew’s. We need to raise £25000 to repair the bellows, so far we have £5797.61 which is fantastic but only 22% of the way there.
