Canticle (The Cornucopia of Heaven #3)


Canticle

After Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, “Venite Exultemus Domino”

 

So lift –
lift high
the horn
of praise
O praise –
O come
to praise
the One
who made
the dawn
and made
the stars
and gave
the dawn
to brighten hearts
and praise
the morning
star of Truth,
praise Him
who hurls!
the hail down
and scatters seed
and moulds
the land.
O kneel
before
His shepherd throne.
O come
to praise,
to hear…
