Singing his praises

This morning in church the processional hymn was Henry F. Lyte's "Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven," set to Sir John Goss's Lauda Anima. It is a free interpretation of Psalm 103 and is one of my favourites. It is one of the few selections in the hymnal that contains different harmonizations for virtually every verse. According to Cyber Hymnal, it was played at the Queen's wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. It was also played at my sister and brother-in-law's wedding three decades later.
