I Will Arise comprises vocal lines which may be divided among the chorus according to voice range—with melody, harmony and descant designations. It might be possible to perform this song with either just men or women’s voices, or in any combination, including adding the children. A roughhewn style of singing and playing would be appropriate.

Be Thou My Vision has a dimension of an “entreaty” to the Lord, as if asking for the Lord’s presence to be there at all times. Thus, the first two words “Be Thou,” are repeated as a background during the singing. Even the opening piano introduction speaks the two-note pattern which will fill the entire song. The men’s and women’s voices are paired in dialogue throughout much of the music. Children's Chorus does not perform in this movement.
Standin’ in the Need of Prayer is a lively tune in swing rhythm. New words are added to reinforce a lighthearted approach. Children’s voices are definitely envisioned as part of this rendition.
Total Duration: 11:45.
