“I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart…” begins this exciting SATB anthem. The use of compound meter and multiple key areas provides interest to the listener and a challenge to the singer but is sure to be a favorite among your church.
Available through the publisher and choral music distributors.
Text based on Psalm 9
I will praise Thee, O Lord, with my whole heart.
I will shew forth all Thy works, all Thy marvelous works.
I will be glad and rejoice in Thee.
I will sing praise to Thy name, O Lord, most high.
When mine enemies are turned back,
They shall fall and perish in Thy presence.
For Thou hast maintained my right and my cause;
Thou sittest in the throne judging right.
But the Lord shall endure forever.
He has prepared His throne for judgment.
And they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee.
For the Lord has not forsaken them that seek Thee,
He remembereth them. He forgeteth not the cry of the humble.
