Description

SATB and Organ. A luscious setting of two stanzas from George Herbert's poem "Even-song." Short and elegant and lovely to sing as well as hear. A lovely Lenten text, but suitable for any occasion when "God's Love" is the theme of the service.

Blest be the God of love,
Who gave me eyes, and light, and power this day,

Both to be busy, and to play.

But much more blest be God above,

blest be the God of love.

My God, thou art all love.

Not one poor minute 'scapes thy breast,
But brings a favour from above ;
And in this love, and in this love, I rest.
