King of Glory, King of Peace Hymn

1. f King of glory, King of peace
I will love Thee,
And that love may never cease
I will move Thee
Thou hast granted my request,
Thou hast heard me,
Thou didst note my working breast,
Thou hast spared me.

2. Therefore with my utmost art
I will sing Thee,
And the cream of all my heart,
I will bring Thee,
mp When my sins, against me cried
Thou didst clear me,
And alone, when they replied,
Thou didst hear me.

3. f Seven whole days, not one in seven.
I will praise Thee
In my heart, though not in heaven,
I can raise Thee
mf Small it is, in this poor sort,
To enroll Thee,
f E’en eternity’s too short,
To extol Thee. Amen

[George Herbert]
