Praise to the Holiest in the Height

Andrew Wright, Richard R. Terry, John Henry Newman

Andrew Wright presents a majestic arrangement of the 1912 hymn tune, BILLING, scored for SATB choir, organ, and brass quartet. This would be a fitting opening or closing hymn for solemn feasts, especially those with a focus on faith and praise (such as ordinations). Lasting about four and a half minutes, it can accommodate longer processionals.

Lyrics

2.

O loving wisdom of our God!

When all was sin and shame,

A second Adam to the fight?

And to the rescue came.

3.

O wisest love! that flesh and blood,

Which did in Adam fail,

Should strive afresh against the foe,

Should strive and should prevail;

4.

And that a higher gift than grace

Should flesh and blood refine,

God’s presence and his very self,

And essence all divine.

5.

O generous love! that he, who smote,

In man for man the foe,

The double agony in man

For man should undergo;

6.

And in the garden secretly,

And on the cross on high,

Should teach his brethren, and inspire

To suffer and to die.
