There is genuine conviction in the theology of this Scripture-based anthem. Confident chords from the piano call the piece to attention before giving way to an energetic theme in minor. Well-balanced phrases of legato and syncopations provide variety while an expressive free-flowing development section calls the listener to repentance and reconciliation. A festive recap of the opening tune drives the piece to a splashy joyous finale. Duration: ca. 3:28.
