Description

SATB with organ or piano.  An absolutely heart-stirring setting of the poem by George Herbert. This is one anthem you'll love to sing again and again! (Do it for communion on Easter Day.)

I got me flowers to strew thy way;
I got me boughs off many a tree:
But thou wast up by break of day,
And brought’st thy sweets along with thee.

The Sun arising in the East,
Though he give light, and the East perfume;
If they should offer to contest
With thy arising, they presume.

Can there be any day but this,
Though many suns to shine endeavour?
We count three hundred, but we miss:
There is but one, and that one ever.
