The LEVAS hymnal is used widely by Episcopal congregations across the country. It contains 280 musical pieces from the African American, Folk, Evangelical, and Gospel traditions compiled under the supervision of the Office of Black Ministries of the Episcopal Church.
This new cultural resource supplements our Hymnal 1982 and enriches the ongoing worship life of St. John’s Episcopal Church, broadening the musical experience for all members, friends and visitors.
Fr. Margrave’s prayer over the hymnals: O Lord, before whose throne trumpets sound, and saints and angels sing the songs of Moses and the Lamb: Accept these Lift Every Voice and Sing Hymnals for the worship of your temple, that with the voice of music, we may proclaim your praise and tell it abroad; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
