‘King of Glory, King of Peace’ has language that might be considered by some to be somewhat archaic, but the simplicity and directness of the sentiments are beautifully and effectively expressed. It is, in fact, quite childlike and, with a little help, accessible to children. Copyright 2008 by James Collignon.

Lyrics

King of Glory, King of Peace
(George Herbert)
Music by James Collignon

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
