Bicentennial

Christ Our Light: Bicentennial Hymn

Our newly-commissioned hymn for the bicentennial of the Archdiocese, composed by Sr. Genevieve Glen, OSB.

Inspired by Archbishop Schnurr’s pastoral letter Radiate Christ (June 2020), this hymn can be used in parishes, schools, and other institutions anytime, but especially during our bicentennial year.

Set to the common meter 8 7 8 7 D, it can be used with a variety of hymn tunes, at least some of which will be familiar to nearly any faith community.

Below you’ll find not only the text itself, but also the text set to a few common hymn tunes for your easy use.

Permission is granted by the author for all within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to freely use this text in perpetuity.
