And God said,
let the earth bring forth grass,
the herb yielding seed,
and the fruit tree yielding fruit
after his kind.
Whose seed is in itself,
upon the earth: and it was so.
And the earth brought forth grass,
and herb yielding seed after his kind,
and the tree yielding fruit,
whose seed was itself, after his kind:
and God saw that it was good.
--Genesis 1:11-12 (K.J.V.)
The text of this biblical anthem is unusual: a portion of the creation narrative from Genesis, celebrating the flowering of bringing forth grass, seeds, and fruit. Craig Phillips’s setting flowers musically with rich warmth. Suitable for Sundays celebrating God’s creation, bounty, or harvest/thanksgiving.
