Moderately Easy
Suggested Uses(s)

Just a fantastic setting of the medieval text attributed to St. Bernard of Clairveaux ("..the very thought is sweet...") SATB with organ and chimes (or 2 tubular bells, or handbells). A beautiful and memorable anthem, one of Kenton's best! it has been sung at Wells Cathedral, as well as venues all over the US.  Also available for SAB.

Jesu! the very thought is sweet!
In that dear Name all heart-joys meet;

No word is sung more sweet than this:

No name is heard more full of bliss;
Than Jesus, Son of God most high.
