Description

SATB a cappella (optional organ or harpsichord).
  The original musical setting (by the author) of the famous Jacobean poem.

Never weather-beaten sail more willing bent to shore,
never tired pilgrim limbs affected slumber more,
Than my weary spirit now longs to fly out of my troubled breast:
O come quickly, sweetest Lord, and take my soul to rest!

Ever blooming are the joys of heav'n's high Paradise,
Old age deafs not there our ears nor vapour dims our eyes:
Glory there the sun outshines; whose beams the Bless├Ęd only see:
O come quickly, come quickly, glorious Lord, and raise my soul to Thee!
