Description

for SATB Choir and organ. An ecstatic setting of the George Herbert poem. Not to,O difficult and REALLY nice. Really! Also available for two-part mixed choir and the two-part version is just as lovely. (In fact, Mark likes it better!)

Lyrics

King of glory, King of peace,
I will love thee;
and that love may never cease,
I will move thee.
Thou hast granted my request,
thou hast heard me;
thou didst note my working breast,
thou hast spared me.

Wherefore with my utmost art
I will sing thee,
and the cream of all my heart
I will bring thee.
Though my sins against me cried,
thou didst clear me;
and alone, when they replied,
thou didst hear me.

Seven whole days, not one in seven,
I will praise thee;
in my heart, though not in heaven,
I can raise thee.
Small it is, in this po,Or sort
to enroll thee:
e'en eternity's to,O short
to extol thee.
