O Lord with Wondrous Mystery (O Lord in this Great Mystery)

This Offertory hymn was written by Michael Gannon (b 1927, who may be a Sulpician priest), and set to a tune (meter 86. 86. 88. 86) by Hendrik F. Andriessen (1892-1981). It was first published by World Library Publications in the 1955 People's Daily Mass Book.

Today, an arrangement for 3-part Choir with optional congregation part, C Instrument, and organ can be purchased on-line directly from from WLP  or from Sheet Music Plus

It is included in GIA Publications Catholic Community Hymnal and in the St Michael Hymnal.

In English-as-a-foreign-language situations, it is sometimes presented as "O Lord in this great mystery".
