Verbena Daphne Brighton in Gissing Village, Norfolk - May, the 1920's
from Nuts in May: memories of care-free days, page 58:
The Sunday after Ascension Day was to us a lovely day, with the special hymn, A and M, No. 506, “Know ye the Lord hath bourne [sic] away your master from your head to-day”. These two lines were sung by the Rector and the local builder, and then the remainder of the choir joined in.
Yea we know it, yet we raise
Songs of thankfulness and praise
He is gone but not before
All his earthly work is o’er.
and we were very joyful and this joy never left us.
