This month's Free
This month's tune is a 3-part arrangement of the classic Christmas anthem "All Glory Be to God on High". The words were penned in 1745 by Charles Wesley, who along with his brother John, were leaders of the evangelical revival in the Church of England in the 18th century, which eventually evolved into the Methodist church.
Charles wrote over 9000 hymns and poems in his lifetime. Some of his better known works include "Come Thou Long Expected Jesus", "Amazing Love", "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling", "Oh For A Thousand Tongues to Sing", "Chrst the Lord is Risen Today", and "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".
The tune most commonly associated with this carol today is known as "Ellacombe", which is based on a German folk melody that was arranged and harmonized specifically for this Christmas carol by an English organist and composer named William Henry Monk. Monk's most famous work is "Eventide", which is used as the melody for "Abide With Me". His arrangement of "Ellacombe" is also commonly used with the hymns "I Sing the Mighty Power of God" and "Hosanna, Loud Hosanna".
This is a 3-part arrangement, melody and bass, so find at least two other playing partners and get started. There are only about 50 practicing days left until Christmas!
In music and friendship,
Glory be to God on high,
And peace on earth descend;
Now God comes down, He bows the sky,
And shows Himself our Friend!
God the invisible appears,
God the Blest, the Great I AM,
He sojourns in this vale of tears,
And Jesus is His Name.
Him by the angels all adored,
Their Maker and their King;
Lo, tidings of their humbled Lord
They now to mortals bring;
Emptied of His majesty,
Of His dazzling glories shorn,
Our being’s Source begins to be,
And God Himself is born!
See the eternal Son of God
A mortal Son of Man,
Now dwelling in an earthly clod
Whom Heaven cannot contain!
Stand amazed, ye heavens, look at this!
See the Lord of earth and skies
Low humbled to the dust He is,
And in a manger lies!
So do the sons of men rejoice
The Prince of Peace proclaim,
With Heaven’s host lift up our voice,
And shout Immanuel’s Name;
Our knees and hearts to Him we bow;
Of our flesh, and of our bone,
See—Jesus is our Brother now,
And God is all our own!
