Notes on the piece
Originally composed for the ordination of Rev Dr Kevin Francis in Glasgow University Chapel in September 2011, the composer has substantially revised the work for this second edition (2018).
You can accompany this work either on the piano or the organ. Organists will naturally tie repeated notes, except where articulation is needed, as in bar 14.
Experienced choirs might like to sing some sections unaccompanied.

Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life!
Such a Way as gives us breath,
Such a Truth as ends all strife,
Such a Life as killeth Death.
Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength!
Such a Light as shows a feast,
Such a Feast as mends in length,
Such a Strength as makes his guest.
Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart!
Such a Joy as none can move,
Such a Love as none can part,
Such a Heart as joyes in love.
from The Temple (1633)
George Herbert (1593–1633)
