Description

SATB - some divisi - a cappella (optional organ). Text is the famous prayer from the Sarum Primer. Yes, we have several settings of this text in our catalog, but that's the beauty of publishing on-line! We love it, and each composer has something different to say. Fraser's setting is melodically and harmonically delightful, sonorically rich, and can be described with a multitude of adjectives, each more picturesque than the last. (Really!)

Lyrics

God be in my head and in my understanding.
God be in my eyes and in my lo,Oking.
God be in my mouth and in my speaking.
God be in my heart, and in my thinking.
God be at my end, and at my departing.
