Description

SAB with organ. A lovely setting of the traditional folk hymn Green Meadows, pay special attention to how stunning the text is. Begins with treble unison, then breaks into 4-part harmony for the remainder, with a moment in the limelight for the organ too! You'll love this simple, yet fulfilling anthem.

Through all the world below,
God is seen all around;
Search hills and valleys through,
There he's found.
The growing of the corn,
The lily and the thorn,
The pleasant and forlorn,
All declare God is there,
In the meadows dressed in green,
There he's seen.

See springs of water rise,
Fountains flow, rivers run;
The mist below the skies
Hides the sun;
Then down the rain doth pour
The ocean it doth roar,
And dash against the shore,
All to praise, in their lays,
That God that ne'er declines
His designs.

The sun, to my surprise,
Speaks of God as he flies:
The comets in their blaze Give him praise;
The shining of the stars
The moon as it appears,
His sacred name declares;
See them shine, all divine!
The shades in silence prove
God's above.
