Give almes of thy goods

Christopher Tye

Give almes of thy goods, and turn never thy face from any poor man,
and then the face of the Lord shall not be turned away from thee.
Offertory sentence, Boof of Common Prayer, from Tobit 4

O come, ye servants of the Lord
O come, ye servants of the Lord,
and praise His holy name
From early morn to setting sun,
His might on earth proclaim.
His laws are just, and glad the heart:
He makes His mercies known.
Ye princes come, ye people too,
and bow before His throne.

partly from Ps.113, vv.1-3


Christopher Tye (1505-1572)
