It is sung in Dibley!

How about....

Set our feet on lofty places,
Gird our lives that they may be,
Armoured with all Christ-like graces,
In the fight to set all free.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
That we fail not them nor Thee.

possibly technically a breach of copyright but retains the intent I think


Not forgotten or ignored in Peebles. We still sing it fairly regularly.

Jim Gordon

The revision works for me Catriona. And glad the hymn is still around in Dibley and Peebles and Paisley. Anywhere else?

Ian Sinclair

It's also well known and loved in Hillhead. Is that a coincidence? Or what?



been away and catching up but it is loved in Cardiff too

Ruth Gouldbourne

and in Bloomsbury! (sorry to be late - been having fun at ICOBS)

angela almond

and we sing it with gusto in Kirby Muxloe (sorry this is late too - I have also been away!!)
