This classic anthem has remained one of Choristers Guild's best selling anthems for over 20 years. Based on John 3:16, the anthem's long, legato melody beautifully underscores the eternal message of God's love for all people and God's gift of redemption through Christ Jesus. The piece works splendidly for either unison or two part treble choirs during Lent or any time of year. An edition for SATB voices is also available (CGA1147).
