St Hilda of Whitby (c. 614–680) was a Christian saint and the founding Abbess of the monastery at Whitby, which was chosen as the venue for the Synod of Whitby.

lyrics

St Hilda of Whitby
(Music and Lyrics Tim Hunter © 2020)

St Hilda of Whitby
Helped form English Christianity
Convened the first Synod
Promoted the word of God

Born into a hard place
Her story inspires us all
She always had such grace
From baptism to hearing the call

A people friendly mission
Becoming an Abbess
She offered salvation
Community and kindness

St Hilda of Whitby
Helped form English Christianity
Convened the first Synod
Promoted the word of God

Her innate wisdom
Her model of ministry
She shared her vision
Based on humanity

Fought the cause for women
Promoted the Gospel
Ascending into Heaven
Guided by Angels

A spiritual Mother
She listened to and enabled
Caedmon and his song
Which is now fabled

St Hilda of Whitby
Helped form English Christianity
Convened the first Synod
Promoted the word of God
