God Hath Spoken by His Prophets

Each From Age to Age Proclaiming

God Hath Spoken by His Prophets was written by the Anglican clergyman and hymn writer, George W. Briggs (1875-1959). It was first published in 1953 as part of his collection: Ten New Hymns from the Bi­ble. It is often sung to the tune, Hymn to Joy (see 2nd video) from the 9th Symphony by Lud­wig van Beet­ho­ven (1770-1827). Shown in the 1st video is a popular alternative melody, Rex Gloriae by Henry T. Smart (1813-1879). In the Divine Office, God Hath Spoken by His Prophets is used with the Office of Readings.
