Too Splendid for Speech but Ripe for a Song
The text for this music begins, "Too splendid for speech but ripe for a song; The wonders of God to whom we belong! What tune can we sing? What chords can we play To honor the potter who made us from clay?" Although there are middle and high school choir parts, the editor notes that they may be sung by adults. There is also a part for the congregation. The handbells join in for the duration of the piece, with measures of rests scattered throughout. Measures total 126.
