The Power of the One is a 67 measure, 4-5 octave medley of Christian hymns whose unifying theme is the Power of the (One) God. This medley is comprised of "I Sing the Mighty Power of God", "Praise the Lord Who Reigns Above", "Eternal Father, Strong to Save" ("The Navy Hymn") and "He Is Able to Deliver Thee". The first two of these hymns are upbeat, and include some melody doubling into the highest octave. Those two and the last hymn make use of occasional descant lines. "He Is Able to Deliver Thee" is very lively, and utilizes both an occasional descant line, and (fairly fast) bass runs. In between "Praise the Lord Who Reigns Above" and "He Is Able to Deliver Thee", you have the slower, and much more reverential "Eternal Father, Strong to Save" (also known as "The Navy Hymn"), which uses handchimes, although bells can be substituted for the chimes. This selection helps add a contrast in style, tempo and volume to the other three. At the end, there is a tag consisting of the last part of "Praise the Lord Who Reigns Above" at a slower tempo, and at a triple forte dynamic level, for a grandioso ending. The fast bass runs contribute to my thinking that this arrangement is probably a 3+ difficulty level.
