Composed for the 50th anniversary of the School of Church Music at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, this is a stately, but festive setting of a new hymn by Mark Hayes and Beth Luttrell. The text encourages us to sing out to God in praise of His goodness, His mercy, and His greatness, and is suitable for general worship use. Strophic in nature, this anthem also incorporates a beautiful development section that uses divisi partwriting in all parts, but many notes are cued. The last stanza is suitable for congregational participation and is followed by a rousing choral coda.
