Exploding with rhythmic energy, this setting of a traditional African tune expresses praise to the Trinitarian God, calling on God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to reign fully in our lives and world. An energetic piano accompaniment, along with a lively group of percussion instruments, amplifies the atmosphere of exuberance, ideal for festivals or services with a multicultural theme. Choirs of all ages will also enjoy singing the simple Swahili text found in each of the anthem's three verses. The contrasting B section incorporates a new English text, along with the optional addition of an SATB choir. Included usage suggestions provide great ideas for choir and voicing options, as well as a pronunciation and translation guide.
Instrumentation: Triangle, Guiro, Small Shekere (or Egg Shaker), Claves, and African Drum (or Congas)
