Subject: Query - 'Satan saw his power was gone'

Hello,

I am transcribing songs that James Madison Carpenter collected in Gloucestershire for the "Single Gloucester" project and have come across this strange one, collected from Robert Lawrence of Chedworth:

Satan saw his power was gone (x3)
He flew like lightning through the air from his throne
Hossana to the lamb of God. (x2)
Hark! Ten thousand voices cry.(x2)
Victory, Victory, Victory [He] dost come.
Swiftly fly the welcome voices,
Spread his rapturous souls all round.
Swiftly fly the welcome voice
Spread his rapturous souls all round.
Glory, glory, let us sing.(x3)
Whilst heaven and earth their glories ring.
Hossana to the Lamb of God. (x2)

Has anyone come across this one before, or if not could anyone suggest its origin?

Tradsinger

It's new to me.

The Carpenter collection, linked in my previous post, suggests a mummer's play at Christmas as an origin.

The joke's on me. I've been digging spuds all morning, and replied before recovering my wits...completely missed that your source is that same collection. My apology!

Gwilym

I think I've found at least one of the sources for the text of this in a book of hymns published in Leeds in 1800. I think you've got an e-mail address for me if you'd like to discuss what is a rather complicated picture.

Hello Georgina,

That sounds very promising but I can't PM you through Mudcat as you came up as a guest. Email me at gwilymd@cmarge.demon.co.uk.

Many thanks
