Traditional text, perfect for Creationtide, Earth Day observances, St. Francis Day, or Rogation days. Two-part (equal voices) and organ. Modern and modal; an expansive and impressive-sounding piece that belies its two-voice construction.
O heavenly Father, who hast filled the world with beauty, open, we beseech thee, our eyes to behold thy gracious hand in all thy works; that rejoicing in thy whole creation, we may learn to serve thee with gladness; for the sake of him by whom all things were made, thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
