With the initial rhythmic punches of this arrangement, we sense a bright new approach to a hymn standard. The well-known theme is presented with new contemporary clothing, bringing exuberance to the celebration of the Living Word. A contrasting lyric verse is an expressive moment before the power of the opening gesture drives it to a joyful closure. A perennial favorite with congregations, choirs of every size and proficiency will resonate with its cheerful spirit. The ChoirTrax CD has the full orchestral accompaniment, and the LiteTrax CD (35032202) has a rhythm section accompaniment.
