Out of our failure to create

Author: Fred Kaan (b . 1929) Hymnal: New Church Praise #77 (1975) Meter: 8.6.8.6 Lyrics: 1 Out of our failure to create a world of love and care; out of the depths of human life we cry to God in prayer. 2 Out of the darkness of our time, of days for ever gone, our souls are longing for the light, like watchmen for the dawn. 3 Out of the depths we cry to him whose will is strong and just; all human hole-and-corner ways are by his light exposed. 4 Hope in the Lord whose timeless Jove gives laughter where we wept; the father, who at every point his word has given and kept. Topics: Confession and Penitence; World and Society Justice and Peace Scripture: Psalm 130 Languages: English Tune Title: OSBORNE

Fred Kaan

1929 - 2009 Person Name: Fred Kaan, b. 1929 Author of "Out of our failure to create" in Complete Anglican Hymns Old and New Fred Kaan Hymn writer. His hymns include both original work and translations. He sought to address issues of peace and justice. He was born in Haarlem in the Netherlands in July 1929. He was baptised in St Bavo Cathedral but his family did not attend church regularly. He lived through the Nazi occupation, saw three of his grandparents die of starvation, and witnessed his parents deep involvement in the resistance movement. They took in a number of refugees. He became a pacifist and began attending church in his teens. Having become interested in British Congregationalism (later to become the United Reformed Church) through a friendship, he was attended Western College in Bristol. He was ordained in 1955 at the Windsor Road Congregational Church in Barry, Glamorgan. In 1963 he was called to be minister of the Pilgrim Church in Plymouth. It was in this congregation that he began to write hymns. The first edition of Pilgrim Praise was published in 1968, going into second and third editions in 1972 and 1975. He continued writing many more hymns throughout his life.

Ralph Vaughan Williams

1872 - 1958 Person Name: R. Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) Adapter and arranger of "OSBORNE" in New Church Praise Through his composing, conducting, collecting, editing, and teaching, Ralph Vaughan Williams (b. Down Ampney, Gloucestershire, England, October 12, 1872; d. Westminster, London, England, August 26, 1958) became the chief figure in the realm of English music and church music in the first half of the twentieth century. His education included instruction at the Royal College of Music in London and Trinity College, Cambridge, as well as additional studies in Berlin and Paris. During World War I he served in the army medical corps in France. Vaughan Williams taught music at the Royal College of Music (1920-1940), conducted the Bach Choir in London (1920-1927), and directed the Leith Hill Music Festival in Dorking (1905-1953). A major influence in his life was the English folk song. A knowledgeable collector of folk songs, he was also a member of the Folksong Society and a supporter of the English Folk Dance Society. Vaughan Williams wrote various articles and books, including National Music (1935), and composed numerous arrangeĀ­ments of folk songs; many of his compositions show the impact of folk rhythms and melodic modes. His original compositions cover nearly all musical genres, from orchestral symphonies and concertos to choral works, from songs to operas, and from chamber music to music for films. Vaughan Williams's church music includes anthems; choral-orchestral works, such as Magnificat (1932), Dona Nobis Pacem (1936), and Hodie (1953); and hymn tune settings for organ. But most important to the history of hymnody, he was music editor of the most influential British hymnal at the beginning of the twentieth century, The English Hymnal (1906), and coeditor (with Martin Shaw) of Songs of Praise (1925, 1931) and the Oxford Book of Carols (1928).
