Originalinterpret: Ultravox

„Hymn“ war die Hitsingle des Jahres 1982 der britischen Gruppe Ultravox mit Leadsänger Midge Ure. Als Auskopplung aus ihrem dritten Studioalbum „Quartet“ erreichte der Titel den 11. Platz der UK Top 40 Charts und konnte sich  in Deutschland und der Schweiz sogar in den Top Ten platzieren.

Geschrieben wurde Hymn gemeinsam von Warren Cann, Chris Chross, Billy Currie und Midge Ure, produziert wurde der Song von George Martin. Textlich gleicht der Titel eher einem biblischen Psalm als einer echten Hymne. Musikalisch jedoch sind deutliche Anklänge an die Nationalhymne der ehemaligen Sovietunion „Государственный гимн СССР“ zu hören, der Titel ist daher durchaus treffend gewählt.

Songtext

Give us this day
All that you showed me
The power and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

Give us this day
All that you showed me
The power and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

Give me all the
Storybook told me
The faith and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

And they say that in our time
All that's good will fall from grace
Even saints would turn their face
In our time

And they told us that in our days
Different words said in different ways
Have other meaning from he who says
In our time

Give us this day

All that you showed me
The power and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

Give me all the

Storybook told me
The faith and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

And they say that in our time
We would reap from their legacy
We would learn from what they had seen
In our time

And they told us that in our days
We would know what was high on high
We would follow and not defy
In our time

Give us this day

All that you showed me
The faith and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

Faithless in faith
We must behold the things
We see

Give us this day

All that you showed me
The faith and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

Give us this day
All that you showed me
The power and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes

Give me all the
Storybook told me
The faith and the glory
'Til my kingdom comes
