Based on Zeph. 3:17, “…in His love He will rejoice over you with Singing.” Poignant text about joy, praise, and singing: this a great opening for a festival or celebration worship. The lilting 6/8 will bring smiles to singers and listeners, and the part writing keeps the choir engaged and moving. I’m always struck by the wonderful melodies that Mr. Forrest creates for the well-chosen text. The Bells and the Orchestra really make this work shine.
