Cecilia cazzato benjamin britten for i will consider my cat jeoffry testo



For I will consider my cat Jeoffry.


For he is the servant of the living God.


Duly and daily serving him.


For at the first glance


Of the glory of God in the East


He worships in his way.


For this is done by wreathing his body


Seven times round with elegant quickness.


For he knows that God is his saviour.


For God has bless'd him


In the variety of his movements.


For there is nothing sweeter


Than his peace when at rest.


For I am possessed of a cat,


Surpassing in beauty,


From whom I take occasion


To bless Almighty God.
