Description

A wonderful shape-note Fuging Tune (Edom) from the 1797 Sacred Harp. SATB a cappella (the accompanying recording doubles the voices with brass). Text by Isaac Watts, celebrating God's good earth.

With songs and honors sounding loud,
Address the Lord on high;
Over the heav’ns He spreads His cloud,
And waters veil the sky.

He sends His showers of blessing down
To cheer the plains below;
He makes the grass the mountains crown,
And corn in valleys grow.
