The marriage supper of the Lamb (Dora Greenwell)
A remarkable poem by poet, suffragette and abolitionist, Dora Greenwell (1821-1882). Unmarried, she lived most of her life with her brothers. The anonymous tune is also remarkable for being, as far as I know, the only hymn tune ever written in 6.10.10.6 meter. It was originally paired with Bishop Heber's hymn, "Blessed be God our God."
