Offertory Anthem    My eyes for beauty pine    Herbert Howells (1892-1983)
Text: Robert Bridges (1844-1930)

My eyes for beauty pine, my soul for Goddes grace,
No other care or hope is mine, to heaven I turn my face.

One splendour thence is shed from all the stars above;
‘Tis named when God’s name is said, ’tis love, ’tis heavenly love.

And every heart that burns with true desire,
Is lit from eyes that mirror part of that celestial fire.

Herbert Howells completed this anthem on Boxing Day, December 26, 1925. The chorus maintains a modest and humble unison texture until the “splendour” that is shed from above is revealed as God’s name, which is heavenly love.
