The day You gave us, Lord, is ended
bagpipes: Mark de Jong (grandson)
|The day you gave us, Lord, is ended,
the darkness falls at your request.
To you our morning hymns ascended;
your praise shall sanctify our rest.
Text: John ellerton,
It is surely a sign that the spirit of Herman de Jong lives on to hear a grandson of his playing the bagpipes, having gone his own way, with obvious musical talent, to become, also at a young age, an accomplished piper of a different sort.
