Composer Z. Randall Stroope has given us a festive anthem of celebration which is extremely flexible. It may be sung by any combination of voices (in two or three parts), and it may be used as a procession if desired. Two texts are provided: one is general, and the other is for Palm Sunday. While the tune is original, it is written in the earthy, study style of a Shaker piece.
Voicing: Two or three part (any combination), keyboard, 3 octaves handbells, and optional hand drum
