A funeral hymn for comfort in upsetting times

The Day Thou Gavest

The day thou gavest, Lord, is ended;
The darkness falls at Thy behest;
To Thee our morning hymns ascended,
Thy praise shall sanctify our rest. We thank Thee that Thy church unsleeping,
While earth rolls onward into light,
Through all the world her watch is keeping,
And rests not now by day or night. As o’er each continent and island
The dawn leads on another day,
The voice of prayer is never silent,
Nor dies the strain of praise away. The sun that bids us rest is waking
Our brethren ‘neath the western sky,
And hour by hour fresh lips are making
Thy wondrous doings heard on high. So be it, Lord! Thy throne shall never,
Like earth’s proud empires, pass away;
Thy kingdom stands, and grows for ever,
Till all Thy creatures own Thy sway.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
