Children of the Heavenly Father
This delicate arrangement of the beloved Swedish tune features an original melody as the basis for an introduction, interlude, and ending. The optional use of handchimes on the second verse, along with plucked or malleted handbells, adds variety, as does the descant in the upper treble bells on the final verse. This arrangement is suitable for baptisms, confirmations, or funerals, or for any time when the focus is on God’s love and care for us. Scored for 3–5 octave handbells with optional 3-octave handchimes. Level II+. Key of C Major. 66 measures.
