This short, tuneful anthem summons up the beauty of the natural world, based on words from Psalm 8. The new final verse invites reflection how best we can nurture our planet for years to come. Composed to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Church of St Matthias at Malvern Link, September 2021.

When I consider Your heavens,
the moon and stars which You ordained,
what is man that You think of him?
The work of Your hand.

When I consider the beasts of the field,
the birds of heaven, the fish of the sea,
whatever passes through the path of the sea:
the work of Your hand.

When I consider our fragile land,
the beauty of our deepest sea,
guide us Father, help us tend
the work of Your hand.
