Blessed Be the Lord
Dale Wood's chant melody is set here for unison (solo) or 2-part choir, organ and optional 2-3 octaves of handbells. There is no meter given and the bells ring in a free manner or in chords. The text is from Luke 1:68-79 - "Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; He has come to His people and redeemed them. He has raised up for us a mighty Savior, through His holy prophets. He promised of old that He would save us from our enemies, from the hand of all who hate us."
