A love song: the text of C.T. Msimang’s “Until You Give Me a Drink of Water” and the lovely sensitive setting by Brad make this composition an attractive choice for any choir.
I shall rise with the morning star
and stir up a love potion;
I will mix in wild asparagus and palm wine
until you say yes to me.
I will go out
when the sun slips into its first shine
when the day breaks first dew;
I shall see how you are being led out
by the fragrances of the morning.
I will wait for you at spring,
I’ll wait for you.
I will wait.
