    A publicly unfolding large-scale album, Gathered Hymns of Haden Laas will consist of thirty-three hymns and a mass. That takes time... In the mean time, enjoy this pressing of the first thirteen, the ones I recorded throughout New York church basements and released monthly beginning July 28th, 2014: Early Hymns of Haden Laas.

    As of December 2018, we have begun the second season. Watch this space for a new upload every month or so. The first thirteen hymns below are found on Early Hymns. They will NOT all appear on the final collection, Gathered Hymns of Haden Laas.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Hymns of Haden Laas via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

So begins season two of Hymns of Haden Laas. No. 14, released Dec. 18th, 2018. Future hymns will be released every four to six weeks.

Revelation 21:2

The verses are the poem "A Vision" by Allick Ellis, another World War I artist whose work was recently discovered.

lyrics

I had a dream of the Great Beyond
That land behind the veil
I stood at the gates of the City
Where lustre & light do not pale
I saw an host of angels
A countless white-robed throng
And heard the voice of thousands
Swelling out the 'glad new song.'
For the gates of the city were opened
Not ajar, but flung open wide
And the ransomed stood to welcome
The souls who had crossed the tide

***

As a bride adorned
As a bride adorned
I have waited and prayed
For my gentle Groom
As a bride consumed
O, Jesu

***

Then I heard a muffled marching
Of a throng steadfast & bold
Drawing nearer the City gates
Nearer their crown of gold
And I saw earth's shattered legions
Armies of the nations slain
Pressing onward as a river
Free from hardships, strife & pain.

Through the high triumphal arches
To the courtyard of the King
Foes on earth but now as brothers
Death has levelled enemy's sting
Robes of white now veiled their bodies
Battered, torn by war's grim game
Faces that on earth were tortured
Now illumined bear his name.

***

Whatever God decides
As a bride adorned
I'm ready
I'm ready

As a bride adorned
As a bride adorned
I process to
And obey this death, to end our war
My brother
I love you
I--

***

And I saw this vast host gathered
As the sheep when in the fold
Waiting for their Captain's welcome
There before the throne of gold
Then the heavenly music thundered
As the waves on rock bound shore
To the hymn the Angels chanted
Peace & rest for evermore.
