The Shadow of Night into Morning

The men of All Saints Church Fulham Choir will be singing an anthem by English composer Edward Elgar on Sunday 27 January.
Seek him that maketh the seven stars is taken from Elgar’s oratorio The Light of Life. Elgar himself conducted its first performance at Worcester Catherdral in 1896.

It was the first oratorio that Elgar wrote. The oratorio tell the story from John’s gospel of a blind man whose sight returns through faith in Jesus Christ.

Seek him that maketh seven stars and Orion
and turneth the shadow of night into morning
and maketh the day dark with night.
The Lord is his name.
O give thanks unto the Lord
For his mercy endureth for ever.
Who has made great light
For his mercy endureth for ever.
The sun to rule the day
The moon and the stars to govern the night
For his mercy endureth for ever.
