A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Friday, March 03, 2006
  Now Let Us All with One Accord
Now let us all with one accord,
In company with ages past,
Keep vigil with our heavenly Lord
In His temptation and His fast.

The covenant so long revealed
To those of faith in former time,
Christ by His own example sealed,
The Lord of love, in love sublime.

Your love, O Lord, our sinful race
Has not returned, but falsified;
Author of mercy, turn your face
And grant repentance for our pride.

Remember, Lord, though rail we be,
In Your own Image were we made;
Help us, lest in anxiety,
We cause Your Name to be betrayed.

Therefore, we pray You, Lord, forgive;
So when our wanderings here shall cease,
We may with You forever live,
In love and unity and peace.

- Gregory the Great, 6th c.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
