Bringle’s hymn was the winner of the Hymn Society’s search for new texts for the third millennium in 2000. It calls us to new strength in the work of the gospel. Morris’ composition brings the energy and life of an animated melody. Horn in F may substitute for the trombone I. Did we mention, the percussion part is for castanets?!

The horn in F part is a substitute for trombone I. The percussion part is for castanets.
