God of Grace and God of Glory
Joel Raney pairs the text of this profound hymn with his own original melody and additional words to capture the power and glory of God’s grace. The essential elements of this stately anthem call for SATB choir and piano accompaniment, but the addition of organ, handbells, 3 trumpets and percussion makes this an ideal selection for any festive service of praise. The appearance of the hymn tune, CWM RHONDDA, pulls everything together along with the deeply felt refrain: “Grant us hearts and hands for service, Lord. On your people pour your holy power!” The Instrumental Parts contain a Conductor's Score and parts for Organ, 3-5 octave Handbells, 3 Trumpets in B-flat, and Percussion (Timpani, Suspended Cymbal & Windchimes).
