O Loving Founder of the Stars

O Loving Founder of the StarsThe choir often sings this arrangement of mine of New Century Hymnal #111 at Easter. Here is that same arrangement performed on organ. You’re welcome to follow along. The exact words as found in our hymnal aren’t found online, but a common text found in other hymnals is at https://hymnary.org/text/creator_of_the_stars_of_night. Those words have 6 versus. The New Century Hymnal version, however, has only 5 verses.

The picture to the left is of a door at the Salzburg Cathedral.

Just a reminder that the complete collection of these hymn recordings is available for free listening (streaming) at https://soundcloud.com/hilton-kean-jones/sets/hymns-at-lakewood. When each new recording is posted on the church website, it is also added to this album.
