Introit or anthem for a patriotic occasion. SATB and SAB setting of a Choral Fanfare for those of us who occasionally need to give a subtle nod to nationalistic holidays (Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, Independence Day, etc.). Quotes hymn tune: Materna.
Come to him, the living Stone,
for you are a chosen people,
a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God.
And all the lands which thou hast made,
shall come and bend the knee,
and bowing low before their Lord,
confess your sovereignty.
For greatness, Lord, is yours alone,
and by your mighty hand,
the rule established by your throne
for ever more shall stand.
