Hymn #532: Come, Labor On
Thomas Tertius Noble (1867-1953) wrote the tune ORA LABORA for this text, and they were first published together in The New Hymnal (1918). Noble lived in the United States, but his works have been compared favorably to some of the great English unison tunes by Charles Villiers Stanford and C. Hubert H. Parry.
T. Tertius Noble was an English organist of note, and his wife was the daughter of an Anglican bishop. They moved to the United States in 1913 when he accepted a position at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, New York City, where he served for thirty years.
