Written by the Anglican George Kitchen in 1887 to a tune previously written by Anglican Sydney Nicolson. A strictly English song until it appeared in 1974 in the very popular American hymnal "Hymns for the Living Church." It first appeared among Lutherans in the ELCA hymnal in 1978 and the LCMS one in 1982. It's now one of the most popular hymns in American Lutheranism but is increasingly enjoyed well beyond Anglicans and Lutherans.

Written by Catholic Dan Schutte in 1981. It was popularized immediately via Catholic World Youth Days and by use at nearly every Papal visitation. It quickly was embraced by Protestants (it was voted #2 by members of the United Methodist Church) and is certainly popular in my Lutheran parish (although I remember this one from my Catholic days)

Processional hymns have a long tradition in the church, especially during the Middle Ages. Venantius Honorius Clementianus Fortunatus (c. 530-609) provides us with a Latin hymn for the Easter season that connects our celebration with those of Christians 1500 years ago.

The refrain of this great hymn, "Hail thee, festival day!" comes from the 20th couplet of Fortunatus' long Latin poem (110 lines!) celebrating the conversion of the Saxons by Felix, Bishop of Nantes (c. 582):


This is an unusual hymn in that it can (and should) be sung throughout the season of Eastertide (Easter Day and Ascension) and on Pentecost Sunday. Two additional stanzas are offered for more general occasions. Each stanza is divided into two parts with two different melodies.

What makes this hymn work is the masterful music by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958). Vaughan Williams, one of England's best known 20th-century composers, served as the musical editor for the English Hymnal. Originally attributed only to "Anonymous," his tune, SALVE FESTE DIES, has the feel and pacing of a fine processional hymn. The moving organ-pedal part and the stirring melody of the refrain are perfect for a cathedral setting with a fine organ (and organist).

This is one that comes from my denomination (The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod). Written by LCMS Pastor Jaroslov Vajda in 1983, it is the most popular of 225 hymns written by this Lutheran parish pastor. The hymn has moved quickly beyond the LCMS and is now found in 18 denominational hymnals. It is a popular benediction song (for the closing hymn). It's one of my personal favorites.

"Lamb of God" written by Twila Paris and released in 1985. It's a fave in my parish. Twila Paris is a very prolific songwriter and with a following far beyond her own "Evangelical" background (her father was a very famous Evangelical preacher, author and songwriter - as well as a founder of a Christian college). She has been publicly singing (beyond her church) since she was 7 and released her first album when she was 19. Many of her songs have wide embrace, but probably none more than this. "Lamb of God" is often considered a "Contemporary" song although I'm not sure why; but if it is, it's among the best.

Psalm 53

There Is None Who Does Good
To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.
1 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."
They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
there is none who does good.
2 God looks down from heaven
on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.
3 They have all fallen away;
together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
4 Have those who work evil no knowledge,
who eat up my people as they eat bread,
and do not call upon God?
5 There they are, in great terror,
where there is no terror!
For God scatters the bones of him who encamps against you;
you put them to shame, for God has rejected them.
6 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.

You won't hear this on CCM radio. The song is from a concept album based on John Bunyan's 'Pilgrims' Progress'.

The Afters' "Well Done" tends to bring tears to my eyes, particularly when our Worship team performs this song. The love and hope that is echoed and shared with my church family during this moment just feels so overwhelming I think, and that's why I have such an emotional reaction to it.
