A modern classic, this piece is sung in every type of congregation, from liturgical to contemporary. The personal commitment required to authentically sing this sacred song is part of the spiritual appeal. This arrangement mixes artistry with ministry very effectively with clearly defined vocal writing and a flowing emotive piano part. The quiet ending is especially sensitive and will help to make the transition to a reverent and worshipful moment. The optional chamber orchestration is an excellent addition for churches with instrumental resources.
