English. Text by Adam M. L. Tice. Scripture: Matthew 13:31b-32, Matthew 25:1-13, Mark 4:31-32, Luke 10:25-37, Luke 13:18-19, Luke 15:11-32.
Morris' unmistakable sound and Tice's words of optimism and new creation are combined for an anthem that inspires the choir and congregation about the will of God. A unison melody allows adaptation to the specific needs of choirs of any size, while the final SATB a cappella verse ends the piece with an enduring sense of hope.
