Product Description

Same tune set for SATB choir or brass quintet.

Bred Dina Vida Vingar is a hymn lyric penned by "the Swedish Fanny Crosby," Lina Sandell. The translation printed below is by Ernest Ryden. The tune is an old Swedish folk melody.

In this arrangement, the flute plays the melody for the first stanza while the cello plays an arpeggiated accompaniment the echoes one of Bach's pieces for unaccompanied cello. The cello then takes the melody for a stanza while the flute plays some figures over the top. The original stanza reprises to complete the piece.

Thy holy wings, dear Savior, spread gently over me,
And through the long night watches I'll rest secure in Thee.
Whatever may betide me, be Thou my hiding place,
And let me live and labor each day Lord, by Thy grace.

Thy pardon, Savior, grant me, and cleanse me in Thy blood;
Give me a willing spirit, a heart both clean and good.
O take into thy keeping Thy children great and small,
And while we sweetly slumber, enfold us, one and all.
