When this song was made popular by Steve Green back in the 1980's, arrangers usually turned up the sound power and emotional energy to full blast. The result was often an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink extravaganza. Tom Fettke and Thomas Grassi have stripped away all that and have re-imagined it with an almost classical elegance and simplicity. Remaining is all the raw power of the truth this song so memorably proclaims - the truth of the transcendence, wisdom, goodness, and eternal beauty of Almighty Sovereign God. A great song is now a great anthem, in the truest sense of the word, and one accessible to choirs of almost any size and stylistic preference. Revelation 4:11, Psalm 73:25-26, Psalm 115:1-3, Isaiah 37:16, 1 Timothy 1:17.
