After a psalm-based, celebratory text that opens with a brief fanfare, this joyful, rhythmic anthem moves quickly into a bright, syncopated style. If the optional brass parts are not used organ would be an excellent substitute. There is no divisi, but medium to larger forces will suit this anthem best. It is a moderately easy piece that has much festive potential for a general theme in worship. The ranges are quite modest, with the exception of one g1 and one a-flat1 for sopranos.
