The lyrics of Charles Wesley are found in almost every denominational hymnal. This anthem is scored for mixed voices with either organ or piano. Methodists might use the piece on heritage Sunday, but the work would also make a fine mother’s day (festival of the Christian home) anthem or for peace and justice Sunday. The lovely lyrical lines and close connection to the text are hallmarks of Dan Forrest’s musical expression.
