Will you sing it with unchanged faces?
THOMAS CRANMER [writing]:
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them up unto the Lord.
Let us give thanks unto our Lord God.
It is meet and right so to do.
It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks.
Ah how the sweet words ring their beauty:
It is meet, right, and our bounden duty.
But will you sing it with unchanged faces
when God shall change the times and the places?
[from Charles Williams, "Thomas Cranmer of Canterbury"]
