Description

Text by Thomas Campion (d.1620). Two-part equal voices and organ. Joyful and majestic.

Sing a song of joy
Praise our God with mirth:
His flock, who can destroy?
Is he not Lord of heaven and earth?

Sing we then secure,
Tuning well our strings,
With voice an echo pure,
Let us renown the King of Kings.

First who taught the day
From the east to rise,
Whom doth the Sun obey,
When in the seas his glory dies.

The stars in order stand
And are directed by his hand.

All that praise his Name,
And his hosts observe,
His arm will shield from shame,
Their steps from truth will never swerve.

Let us then rejoice,
sounding loud his praise;
So will he hear our voice,
And bless on earth our peaceful days.
