  1. Was singing this in my head upstairs just now and Mr Gorgy began singing it very lustily downstairs. We are of the daily school assembly generation and know lots of hymns. Although an ex choirboy Mr G is terribly anti religion and I am not a great believer. It is not Sunday - spooky that we were both singing it. I think it is spooky anyway. Can't think of anything we had been talking about that might have set us both off separately.

    I haven't sung this hymn for ages- and when I went to Mass this morning, it was the opening hymn. I do love singing it- in fact, it was one of the hymns my (atheist) OH chose to have at our wedding. He obviously remembers it from school assemblies too!
     
  4. I haven't sung this for years as our church sings modern songs and now it is going round my head,
    I loved school hymns because I liked singing. I also loved Singing Together, for those old enough to remember it.

    Isn't it sad that these wonderful rousing hymns aren't being sung. At our church they have different Masses with different types of hymn so we do get the traditional and the modern ones. There are some lovely modern ones too.
     
  6. Yes - I love the old ones but we have huge student/ young family congregations and they like modern songs. They are really lovely young people so I don't mind as long as they don't mess with Christmas / Easter!
     
  7. Which tune? Being the last of the school assembly hymn singing assembly generation - we didn't do it when I got secondary school in 1984 - I know two different tunes for the hymn.
