Ensemble: SATB or ATTB
I loved this text when I first came across it and wanted to write my own setting. The change between 4/4 and 5/4 gives a lilting, comforting feel, while in contrast, the harmonic shifts in the second and fourth verses add an urgency to be cleansed and trusting in God.
Although written as SATB the soprano part could be sung by tenors an octave down, making an ATTB anthem.
