Michael Perry's popular hymn text speaks of praising God no matter what life brings our way, for God is so amazing that no song can truly express the depth of our gratitude. Set in equal parts unison and four-part homophonic style, this is ideal for general worship and perfect as an introit. The conclusion is a polyphonic coda of "Alleluias" based on the THAXTED tune that builds to a glorious finish. The Brass packet contains a Conductor's Score and parts for 2 B-flat Trumpets, 2 Trombones (Horn in lieu of Trombine 1), & Timpani.
