Description

SATB with organ and oboe. Text is an anonymous prayer from Singapore with rich gardening imagery. A beautiful anthem, suitable for Advent, Lent, or even Rogation Days.

God, stir the soil,
Run the plowshare deep,
Cut the furrows round and round,
Overturn the hard, dry ground,
Spare no strength, nor toil,
Even though I weep.
In the loose, fresh mangled earth
Sow new seed.
Free of withered vine and weed
Bring fair flowers to birth.
