Hymn: Grumpy, graceless human beings

Proper 20 Year A
Exodus 16: 2-15

Grumpy, graceless human beings
angry at their lot;
Moses once had been their idol,
but they soon forgot.

Slaves set free should be more grateful,
but we’re just the same;
satisfaction soon exhausted,
ready to complain.

If we see the world around us,
given to our hands...

Tune: GOD YOU HOLD ME (Big Blue Planet, 1995, Stainer & Bell Ltd and the
Trustees for Methodist Church Purposes)

If the verses are paired TENETE can be used which may be more widely available to

14th Sunday after Pentecost, hymn, Moses, Exodus,
proud, jealous, providence, quails


Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
