The Birth of John the Baptist

Celebrated on 24th June

A hymn for this day that is not heard so often these days:
Hail, Harbinger of Morn.

Originally written in Latin by the Venerable Bede who lived from 673 to 735, this is a Victorian translation with a tune by W H Bell (1873-1946).

The dictionary defines a harbinger as: “A forerunner, a thing which tells of the onset or coming of something”.

Feel free to sing along!
