In God Alone - Farrell

This hymn was written by English composer Bernadette Farrell (b 1957).    The lyrics draw from Revelation, chapters 7 and 21.

It was included in her 2013-released album "Love Goes On" - for which the choral songbook is available from OCP.    Individual song sheet music can also be purchased for download from their site, and an octavo choral arrangement is available from Sheet Music Plus (as below).

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here.   And because it's so new, there don't appear to be any copies on the internet as yet, although there is currently this version of the words + chords.

The song starts with a four-line chorus, and this is repeated after each of the four verses. A rough outline is:
In God alone my hope,
In God alone my strength,
In God alone my shelter be,
My home, my heart, my liberty.

1    Then I saw a new earth, a new heaven ...

2    No more pain, no more death, no more weeping ...

3    Then let all who are thirsty find water ....

4    For the world of the past is behind us ...
