King of Glory, King of Peace

TUNE I: GWALCHMAI




TUNE II: GENERAL SEMINARY







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.

Wherefore with my utmost art
I will sing thee,
and the cream of all my heart
I will bring thee.
Though my sins against me cried,
thou didst clear me;
and alone, when they replied,
thou didst hear me.

Seven whole days, not one in seven,
I will praise thee;
in my heart, though not in heaven,
I can raise thee.
Small it is, in this poor sort
to enroll thee:
e'en eternity's too short
to extol thee.

Words: George Herbert (1633)
Tune I: GWALCHMAI, 74.74D
Tune II: GENERAL SEMINARY, 74.74D (by David Charles Walker)
