All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
A Mark Miller jewel, this new setting of a prophetic text will challenge both your congregation’s spirit and your choir’s musicianship! A slow, dramatic introduction for alto solo or soli introduces the title question. Instructions to “hit it” best describe the energy and excitement of the remaining anthem. The vocal parts are quite accessible to your SATB ensemble, including youth. Do note the soprano high B[flat], which is optionalPerformance options include solo or soli on the opening section. This setting may be sung as a response to the reading of Micah 6, as a benediction, or general anthem.
Appropriate days: Service themes on Christian responsibility; use of Micah 6:8; and general worship.
