This anthem has two texts to choose from, one for Advent or Christmas and one appropriate to Communion. Its lilting organ accompaniment creates a gentle opening verse in unison. Verse 2 has optional SATB harmony, and verse 3 is for unison voices with optional soprano descant and builds to a climactic ending. It is in the tradition of hymn-anthems, but uses an original tune.
Instrumentation: Unison voices or SATB with or without optional soprano descant, organ.
