Transcendent God in Whom We Live

New Life and Hope Spring Up Again

Transcendent God in Whom We Live is sung with Morning Prayer in the Divine Office. It set to the tune, Morning Hymn by composer, Fran­çois H. Bar­thé­lé­mon (1741-1808). Written at the request of an orphanage chaplain in London, it was published in 1785 in Hymns and Psalms used at the Asy­lum House of Ref­uge for Fe­male Or­phans. The French born Bar­thé­lé­mon spent most of his working life in England where he enjoyed a very active career as a music instructor, composer and violinist.
