This tranquil, flowing arrangement by Karen Lakey Buckwalter is based on the 19th century American tune known as LORD, REVIVE US. The opening measures consist of an original motif which is interwoven throughout the piece as we travel through two verses of the tune and end with the original motif. Several themes of the text are: Gods mercy is as wide as the sea, Gods grace is for everyone and Gods love is broader than what the human mind can measure. These basic beliefs of the Christian faith are prominent in this hymn making Theres a Wideness in Gods Mercy an excellent option for many Sundays throughout the year.
