John Brownlie's eucharistic hymn "Let Thy Blood in Mercy Poured" is the basis for this new musical setting. Fedak's music is tender, introspective, and deeply moving. For SATB and organ.

Let thy blood in mercy poured,
let thy gracious body broken,
be to me, O gracious Lord
of thy boundless love the token,
Thou didst thyself for me,
now I give myself to thee.

Thou didst die that I might live;
blessed Lord, thou cam'st to save me;
all that love of God could give
Jesus by his sorrows gave me.
Thou didst give thyself for me,
now I give myself to thee.

By the thorns that crowned thy brow,
by the spear wound and the nailing,
by the pain and death I now claim,
O Christ, thy love unfailing.
Thou didst give thyself for me,
now I give myself to thee.

Wilt thou own the gift I bring?
All my penitence I give thee;
thou art my exalted King,
of thy matchless love forgive me.
Thou didst give thyself to me,
now I give myself to thee.

--John Brownlie


review copy

"Alfred Fedak's 'Thy Matchless Love' is also a very fine piece, setting John Brownlie's familiar text to a vintage Fedak original tune. For the benefit of those who do not yet know what 'vintage Fedak' is, the best definition I can give is the most honest: 'vintage Fedak' is a wonderfully singable tune that always makes me say, 'Gosh! I wish I'd written that!" --AAM Journal, December 2001
