|Dwell within us, make us one.|
Father, Lord of Earth and Heaven, with words by Fr. James Quinn, S.J. (1919-2010) is set to the tune Drakes Broughton by British composer, Edward Elgar (1857-1934). Written in 1878 when Elgar was just 21 years of age. The title refers to a wooded lane leading to Drake’s Broughton that the composer had a fondness for. In the Liturgy of Hours, Father, Lord of Earth and Heaven is used during Ordinary Time for Daytime Midmorning Prayer.
