This is the ideal piece for your next communion service, for the John Foley text based on verses from I Corinthians emphasizes our unity in the Lord as we share the bread and the cup. Mark Hayes has given the piece a contemporary feel in his arrangement with a flowing, yet rhythmic, piano accompaniment and vocal parts that are quite accessible and very satisfying to both singers and congregation. Strophic in form, the song opens with the refrain, which recurs after each of the two verses; the second verse builds to a forte return of the chorus in a strong unison, emphasizing the strength of unity in the body of Christ. It then opens into fully-voiced four parts, finally tapering to a gentle ending. Any youth or adult choir would benefit from having this piece as a part of its repertoire to be programmed again and again.
