Cecil Francis Alexander's cheerful text and the traditional English tune to which it is usually sung lend themselves to a refreshing and enjoyable concertato accessible for even a small choir. The choir sings the stanzas while the congregation sings the refrain. A creative organ accompaniment helps to musically paint the wonderful pictures of creation so delightfully rendered by text and tune.
