This festive anthem, incorporating children's, youth, and adult choirs, calls the church to fulfill it's mission to serve others and share God's love to a world in need. Each choir sings one of the anthem's verses alone as well as singing the opening and closing sections of the piece together. A creative weaving of the familiar hymn tune, "St. Thomas," and the anthem's original melody takes place prior to the resounding conclusion when all choirs, congregation, and B-flat trumpet restate the opening proclamation, "Arise, O church of God! ".
