SATB. A wonderful, rugged setting by the master of Early American choral music with alternating homophonic and imitative textures. Great for Ascension, and All Saints Day, but also for Advent and Easter seasons.

Lyrics

Rejoice, ye shining worlds on high,
Behold, the King of Glory nigh!
Who can this King of Glory be?
The mighty Lord, the Saviour's he.

Rais'd from the dead he goes before;
He opens heav'n's eternal do,Or,
to give his saints a blest abode
Near their Redeemer and their God.
