Herb Frombach has crafted an engaging lyric that declares, “This is the season of promise. Nature is shouting resurrection!” The anthem begins quietly in G minor with a restlessness that simulates the seed gently pushing its way into the light. Something is happening. God is at work. Hayes masterfully builds to a stirring cadence of sound in the accompaniment, setting up the joyful chorus in A Major which drives toward a dynamic, full-voiced ending. This is perfect for Eastertide or general worship, especially in the spring.
