Description: A setting of the Collect for Advent III in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, this piece is shamelessly indebted to seventeenth-century English composers. It is suitable as an introit or short anthem at any time in the season of Advent.
Original text and translations
Stir up thy power, O Lord,
and with great might come among us;
and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins,
let thy bountiful grace and mercy
speedily help and deliver us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with thee and the Holy Ghost,
be honor and glory, world without end.
