Saint John-Baptist-Mary Vianney hymn

St John-Mary Vianney2.jpgSing the God of awesome wisdom
Who has chosen for his own
Those of ev'ry age and nation
To hold fast to God alone
Through all changing styles and customs,
Hearts that only Christ enthrone.

In a faithless time of torpor,
John Vianney loved the Lord,
Preached the truth with ceaseless fervor,
Led his flock by deed and word,
And by his example fearless
Caused our God to be adored.

Lovingly he coaxed the sinner
To submit to Jesus' way;
In humility and patience
To his Lord he knelt to pray
And, obedient to his calling,
Lived his teaching ev'ry day.

To the Trinity give glory,
Father, Son, and Paraclete:
Those on earth with those in heaven
Joining in one anthem sweet:
As the saints on earth gave witness,
Let us each our course complete!

Good morning and warm greetings from the Pacific Regional Seminary here in Suva, Fiji.

I had been searching for a hymn to be sung in honour of St John Marie Vianney's feastday which is coming up soon. I found the lyrics to a hymn which is dedicated to John Vianney on Paul Zalonski's blog this morning. I would just like to know whether anyone would have the muscic for this particular hymn, or if anyone could tell me where I could get it from - I'd be ever so grateful! The seminarians would like to sing this hymn for St John Vianney's feast day.

Thanking you in anticipation and God bless you.

In Jesus + Mary
