John Broderip was perhaps the most prominent member of a dynasty of west country musicians. He was organist at Wells Cathedral (succeeding his father) and published psalmody and glees.

This anthem is from his "New set of anthems and psalm tunes for the use of parish churches", c.1745.
Lyrics: Psalm 63, v.1-5

O God, thou art my God: early will I seek thee.
My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh also longeth for thee: in a barren and dry land, where no water is.
Thus have I look'd for thee in holiness: that I might behold thy pow'r and glory.
For thy loving kindness is better than life itself: my lips shall praise thee.
As long as I live will I magnify thee on this manner: and lift up my hands in thy Name.
Hallelujah. Amen.
