There is a gentle country feel to this anthem that calls for God's spirit to draw us into a closer relationship with Christ. A good balance of unison/two-part writing and richer four-part harmonies make this worshipful ballad a satisfying selection for traditional choral ensembles, while the lyrics make it useful all year long.

The power of praise is front and center in this steady ballad for the contemporary church from Matt Redman / Arr. Richard Kingsmore.  The melody contains itself with a range that is very approachable, and the solid refrain offers fuller harmonies and memorable gestures. This popular song translates beautifully to a choral treatment, and the style and arrangement work well with or without the rhythm and string sections. Great for blended services! Score and parts (rhy, perc 1-2, vn 1-2, va, vc, db) available as a digital download.
