Based on Psalms 96 and 98, this song is especially suitable for the season of Christmas (esp. Epiphany). The bright and spirited diatonic refrain melody, which through well-placed leaps in the melody gradually ascends an octave, accurately captures the joyful message of the text. The verses introduce expressive chromaticism as an effective contrast. The assembly-friendly melody is enhanced by SAB choral parts and descant. Parts for handbells and soprano saxophone are available online.
