This joyful anthem captures the excitement and wonder of the shepherds as they learned of Christ's birth. A trumpet-like fanfare in the piano sets the stage for the lilting melody, as young voices declare, "Arise, shine, Jesus has come!" An optional scripture reading is also included that may be used to introduce the anthem.
