I've discovered a new hymn (well, new to me...) that I really like: O God of Earth and Altar. And I like it for four reasons:
1) I really like the words.
O God of earth and altar,
bow down and hear our cry,
our earthly rulers falter,
our people drift and die;
the walls of gold entomb us,
the swords of scorn divide,
take not thy thunder from us,
but take away our pride.
- the other two verses are pretty swell as well.
2) I like that it was written by G. K. Chesterton
3) I like the tune, or at least one of the tunes to which it can be sung: a Welsh melody, Llangloffan.
4) And I like that the British heavy metal band, Iron Maiden, used a portion of it in their song, Revelations.
