One Cold Night in Spring

This Northern Hemisphere hymn about the Easter Triduum (three days of liturgies from Passover meal to Jesus resurrection) was written by English youth-worker Damian Lundy.

It is set to an unnamed tune by Lundy, with a 4/4 time signature.  The original publication is in the key of Am, and the first few notes are A(low) E E G F#.

It was first published in 1978, in Songs of the Spirit volume 1. It was also included in a 1979 recording "I Will be With You" by La Sallian Resources. (ref), and in the 1993 and 1999 editions of (Liturgical) Hymns Old and New both available from Amazon - and these are the best ways to get the sheet music today.

No recordings or other on-line examples have been found.


The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here.  The song has five verses, each four lines long. A rough outline is:
1 One cold night in spring the wind blew cold ...

2 And he broke a wheaten loaf to share ...

3 Then he poured good wine into a cup ...

4 See a dying man with arms outstretched ...

5 Soon a man will come with arms outstretched ...
