Winding its way through the hymn "Like a River Glorious" is Debussy's Arabesque, No. 2.  For this piano arrangement, I imagine the Arabesque is a counter theme of capricious streams and rivulets while the hymn is the stately river. I prefer rubato for this piece, so don't hesitate to add occasional tempo fluctuations to mimic the ever-shifting current; you want to give the listener the suggestion of water rushing over rocks. Ideal as a church prelude, an offertory or special music.  Also recommended for recitals and outdoor concerts. 5 pages. Key: G major.
