Description

SATB Choir, optional accompaniment. A charming strophic motet that will be enjoyed any time of year, but specifically when beauty in God's creation is the theme. Text by Robert Bridges (1844-1930). Written for and recorded during the Mississippi Conference on Church Music and Liturgy.

My eyes for beauty pine,
My soul for Goddës grace:
No other care nor hope is mine,
To heaven I turn my face.

One splendour thence is shed
From all the stars above:
'Tis named when
Goddës name is said,
'Tis Love, 'tis heavenly Love.

And every gentle heart,
That burns with true desire,
Is lit from eyes that mirror part
Of that celestial fire.
