Description

SATB and Organ. Whenever Carson sets a well-known text like this one, you know you're in for a treat! The organ part is more difficult than the choir part but sets it off beautifully. Etheral and effective with a wonderfully unexpected ending.

Text: George Herbert (1593-1633)

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.
