I have been searching for these lyrics for years and just when I mention to my friend that I cannot find them anywhere - up pops this post! Divine? We sang all but the last verse as our music teacher didn’t like the word “gay” - but refused to change it for another word. Didn’t realise the lady who wrote this also wrote my other favourite hymns - When a Knight won his spurs and Lord of all hopefulness. Thank you so much for this thread. Amazing.

Wonderful to read!
I have sung this all my life to myself, but I seem to break into emotion when I try to sing it to others!! It’s so honest, innocent and joyful!
Thankyou to everyone for sharing your memories and all the information about this lovely hymn.
