One of oldest statements of faith in Christendom is set with a “world music” feel. With building intensity, this repetitive prayer becomes a powerful call for forgiveness and commitment. The verses acknowledge our need for mercy and the music becomes more emotional with the overwhelming assurance that we are children of grace. The harmonies and percussion add a distinctive touch that is truly special. Available separately: SATB, StudioTrax CD (Accomp/Split/Perf), Digital Percussion (3 players-tambourine, maracas, congas, wood block, djembe). Duration: ca. 4:09.
