Praise the Living God Who Sings

Voicing: SATB

Publisher: Augsburg Fortress

Publication Year: 2001


Commissioned by St. Barnabas Lutheran Church, Plymouth, Minnesota, for the dedication concert of its new J.F. Nordlie organ on April 1, 2001. A festive choral setting of the text by David Robb of Dalton, Georgia. Robb’s text was inspired by Zephaniah 3:17, “He will rejoice over you with singing.” The three stanzas are set in fast-slow-fast form, with the opening and closing sections in 5/4 meter and the pastoral middle section in 3/4. Alleluias resound throughout the anthem, with the final strain repeating in octave unison the dramatic reminder that “God still sings!”
