*** I wrote this at Lee Abbey to be the post-Communion hymn for Pentecost Sunday. In view of the special character of that Feast-day, I consciously pushed the limits of what a congregation could and would sing way beyond what is usual; the resulting vocal uplift was something I will never forget. But it is a long time since I have been in a congregation that I suppose would be willing to offer this hymn.Send-us-out-in-the-power-of-thy-Spirit
I lost the manuscript of this hymn shortly after it was sung. Although recalling the music was not a problem, I have had freshly to create some part of the words.
