Hardiman the Fiddler YOUR Favorite Hymns Part 2 (40) ADD: St. Catherine's Court 15 Oct 00


As a carry over from the posting in the first thread, one of my current favorites is St. Catherine's Court. I've heard the tune many years ago now, and these words are by memory. If anyone has a more definitive link, I would appreciate it.

SAINT CATHERINE'S COURT

In our day of thanksgiving, one song let us offer
For the Saints who before us have found their reward
When the shadow of death fell upon them, we sorrowed
But now we rejoice that they rest in the Lord.

In the morning of life, and at noon and at even
He called them away from their labors below
But not till his love at the font and the altar
Had girt them in strength for the way they should go

Sing praise then for those who here sought and here found him,
Whose journeys are over, whose trials are passed
They believed in the Light and its glory surrounds them
Where clouds of earth's darkness are lifeted at last.

Hardiman (Greg) the Fiddler
