This stirring anthem portrays the church at worship: gathering, giving thanks, greeting one another, offering prayers of confession and intercession, sharing in communion, making an offering prayers, and going out together to serve. The bouncy, uneven melodic rhythm and the visual nature of the text make this an ideal piece to choreograph for dancers and use with banners. Adding wrists bells to the movers also accents the festive nature of the anthem.
Voicing: Intercongregational choirs, keyboard, congregation, flute or violin, and opt. 1 octave handbells
