Frederick Arthur Gore Ouseley (1825-1889)
Sir Frederick Arthur Gore Ouseley (1825-1889) was an English composer, organist, musicologist and priest. He was educated at Oxford where he became Professor of Music in 1855, the same year in which he was made Precentor of Hereford Cathedral, a post he held for 30 years.
In 1856 Ouseley both founded and endowed with his own funds St Michael’s College on the outskirts of Tenbury Wells, a choir school intended to serve as a model for Anglican church music. Of his students the most famous is probably Sir John Stainer (1840 – 1901).
Thy Will Be Done, The Saviour Said : Lyrics
(Thy Will Be Done, The Savior Said)
Thy will be done, the Saviour said,
and bowed to earth his sacred head,
the sands of life had nearly run,
my Father, let thy will be done,
thy will, not mine, be done.
No watch his spent disciples kept,
amid the shadows deep they slept;
but silent ...
Poem – To Dance With Angels
Heroes all who lead and follow
Into worlds where death does tread
Climbing high or crouched in hollow
Primed with orders clearly said
Senses ready, droplets on chin
Enemy sighted, eyes fixed on prey
Harsh men walking, talking, thin
Stumbling into deadly fray
A whisper, a nod, bullet flies
Standing proud for better aim
Cracks of fire fill the sky
To The Name Of Our Salvation Lyrics
1. To the name of our salvation
Laud and honour let us pay,

But with holy exultation
We may sing aloud today.
2. Jesus is the name we treasure,
Name beyond what words can tell;
Name of gladness, name of pleasure,
Ear and heart delighting well;
Name of sweetness ...
To Whom Will You The Lord Compare? : Lyrics
1. To whom will you the Lord compare?
Is there His equal anywhere?

Of galaxies, of milky ways,

So great is ...
Unto the hills I lift my eyes;
From whence shall help arise?
My help comes from the Lord alone,
Maker of earth and skies.
He shall not let your foot be moved,
He watches His beloved.
Behold, He guards His chosen ones,
In sleep they are un-moved.
The Lord’s your keeper, night and day;
At your right hand, come what may;
Not sun, nor ...
Unto Us A Boy Is Born : Lyrics
Unto us a boy is born,
King of all creation:
Came he to a world forlorn,
The Lord of every nation,

With sleepy cows and asses;
But the very beasts could see
That He all men surpasses,
That He all men surpasses.
Herod then with fear was ...

We plough the fields and scatter
The good seed on the land,
But it is fed and watered
By God’s almighty hand;

The warmth to swell the grain,
The breezes and the sunshine,
And soft refreshing rain.
All good gifts around us
Are sent from heav’n above,
Then thank the Lord, O ...

What Child is this who, laid to rest
On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass ...
When A Knight Won His Spurs Lyrics
When a knight won his spurs, in the stories of old,

With a shield on his arm and a lance in his hand,
For God and for valour he rode through the land.
No charger have I, and no sword by my side,

Was all his will and thus he brought
Unnumbered souls to God.
When Andrew’s hour had come, and he
