Lyrics

O God, beneath thy guiding hand,
Our exiled fathers crossed the sea.
And when they trod the wint’ry strand
With prayer and psalm they worshipped thee.

Thou heards’t, well-pleased, the song, the prayer.
Thy blessing came and still its pow’r
Shall onward through all ages bear
The mem’ry of that holy hour.

Laws, freedom, and faith in God
Came with those exiles o’er the waves.
And where their pilgrim feet have trod
The God they trusted guard their graves.

And here Thy name, O God of love,
Their children’s children still adore
‘Til these eternal hills remove,
And Spring adorns Earth evermore.

A traditional Christmas carol for a cappella women’s chorus

This arrangement grows into an elaborate celebration 4-part echo-style chorus.
I would like to adapt this arrangement for Mixed Chorus sometime, so if you would be interested in that let me know — I can get it done for you.
