Second verse[edit]

It always seems to me that the first line of the second verse beginning with 'Our God' doesn't scan and so it is much easier to sing this line without these first two words. Almost all the published versions include these two words but very occasionally they are dropped. It may have worked when Christina wrote the poem, but since Holst came up with a tune there seems there has been no significant move to make a the words fit. JMcC (talk) 13:52, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

  • I'm probably quite wrong, but isn't "The Lord God Almighty" the wording more usually sung in the penultimate line to this verse, rather than "... incarnate"? Captain Pedant (talk) 19:30, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

The article says Sarah McLachlan recorded the Holst tune, Her recording on Wintersong sounds more like the Darke tune to me. RogRev RogRev (talk) 11:25, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
