Worthy Of Homage And Of Praise

by Miss F. T. Wigram (19th Century)

Tune: Talis's Canon L.M.

1 WORTHY of homage and of praise;
Worthy by all to be adored:
Exhaustless theme of heavenly lays!
Thou, Thou art worthy, Jesus, Lord.

2 To Thee, e'en now, our song we raise,
Though sure the tribute mean must prove:
No mortal tongue can tell Thy ways,
So full of life, and light, and love.

3 Yet, Saviour, Thou shalt have full praise;
We soon shall meet Thee on the cloud;
We soon shall see Thee face to face,
In glory praising as we would.

The composer of the tune is a Thomas Tallis, whom I knew nothing about before, apart from that a local school here is named after him! (which school has actually been used for some Brethren Saturday meetings in recent years).
They have provided more info on this 16th century composer who lived in Greenwich;
