00111661, SATB, $2.25
Based on Jeremiah 29:11-14, this Mark Hayes original celebrates the promise that what God has planned for the people who love Him is “more than eyes have seen or ears have ever heard” and is perfect for general worship use. The lyrics are solidly grounded in the scriptures and draw from Psalm 27 and 1 Corinthians 2 as well. Starting with a simple unison melody by the women, the tune is echoed by the men and builds to a powerful chorus in full SSATB writing. Hayes follows this with a fantastic fugal section that gives each voice part a chance to shine. The dynamic ending is majestic and will showcase the range and depth of your choir with full-on divisi partwriting. Hayes’ piano accompaniment is orchestral in nature and will delight not only the pianist but singers alike. This relatively challenging piece is more traditional than contemporary, but would work well in a blended or traditional worship service or sacred concert setting.
