The publisher writes "Heavenly Sunlight is an anthem arrangement of a beloved gospel hymn. Appropriate for the entire church year, it maybe especially useful for Ascension, Eastertide and early Lent". Suggested corresponding lectionary readings include Genesis 1:1-5, Psalm 136, John 8:12, 2 Corinthians 4:1-6 and Ephesians 5:8-14. One basic homiletical theme is the promise of God's redeeming Light to all who walk in His ways. An edition for 3-5 octaves of handbells may be played as a separate piece, or as an accompaniment to choral performances of this anthem. Can be accompanied by the handbell arrangement (#16477).
