Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: – as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia. HYMN Tomorrow shall be my dancing day, I would my true love did so chance To see the legend of my plays, To call my true love to the dance. Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. Then was I born of a Virgin pure, Of her I took fleshly substance: Then was I knit to man’s nature, To call my true love to my dance. Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. In a manger laid and wrapp’d I was, So very poor this was my chance, Betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass, To call my true love to the dance. Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. Then afterwards baptised I was, The Holy Ghost on me did glance, My Father’s voice heard from above, To call my true love to my dance. Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. Into the desert I was led, Where I fasted without substance: The Devil bade me make stones my bread, To have me break my true love’s dance. Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. The Jews on me they made great suit, And with me made great variance, Because they loved darkness better than light, To call my true love to the dance. Sing oh, sing oh my love. For thirty pence Judas me sold, His covetousness for to advance; Mark whom I kiss, the same do hold, The same is he shall lead the dance. Sing oh my love, my love. Before Pilate the Jews me brought, When Barabbas had deliverance; They scourged me and set me at nought, Judged me to die to lead the dance. Sing oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. When on the cross hanged I was; When a spear to my heart did glance, There issued forth both water and blood, To call my true love to the dance. Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. Then down to Hell I took my way, For my true love’s deliverance, And rose again on the third day, Up to my true love and the dance, Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. Then up to Heav’n I did ascend, Where now I dwell in sure substance, On the right hand of God That man may come into the general dance. Sing oh my love, oh my love, my love, my love, This have I done for my true love. This Have I Done For My True Love by Choir Of St. John’s College; Authorship: from Folk poetry or song tradition (Volkslieder) , a Cornish carol from Sandys, Christmas Carols, Ancient and Modern, published 1833 ; Musical settings: Gustav Holst, “This have I done for my true love”, op. 34 no. 1, H. 128. PSALMODY Ant. 1 Remember us, O Lord; come with your saving help. Psalm 106 The goodness of the Lord; the faithfulness of his people These things have been written as a warning for us, for we are living at the end of ages (1 Corinthians 10:11) I O give thanks to the Lord for he is good; for his love endures for ever. Who can tell the Lord’s mighty deeds? Who can recount all his praise? They are happy who do what is right, who at all times do what is just. O Lord, remember me out of the love you have for your people. Come to me, Lord, with your help that I may see the joy of your chosen ones and may rejoice in the gladness of your nation and share the glory of your people. Our sin is the sin of our fathers; w[...]
