Based on words from the Old and New Testaments this processional hymn was originally written for a choir festival in the 19th century. Here Marty Parks sets the familiar words to the sturdy Hebrew melody, LEONI, before returning to the original refrain at the conclusion. The accompaniment is for piano with an optional part for organ.
