Ralph Vaughan Williams: The Song of the Tree of Life

Choir of Ely Cathedral [YouTube]

Unto them that overcome shall be given
of the tree of life, which is in the midst of
the paradise of God. On either side of the
river groweth the tree of life, the leaves of
the tree are for thy healing. In the midst of
that fair city flows the river of water of life
clear as crystal. Whoso will, let them take
to the water of life freely. Whoso drinketh
of this water shall never thirst. Take thou
the leaves of the tree of life. So shalt thou
enter in through the gates of the city.
