We Worship You” General anthem for SAB voices and piano by Glenn Wonacott.
This reverent anthem quietly brings words of praise and worship. Unison voices present stanza one offering various names of Jesus. Stanza two uses the same music incorporating an additional alto and bass part. Text identifies qualities of Jesus, exalted. The refrain, measures 20 through 28, again proclaims various names of Jesus. Stanza three offsets the men and women's voices as a call and response. The key moves from D major into E flat major creating a brighter, newly energized color to this final stanza. Measure 38 is a direct repeat of measure 10 with a coda statement added to complete the anthem.
The accompaniment imitates a broken chord guitar pattern. Keep it simple and unadorned for best results. This is a prayerful anthem that works well in humble tones. The voice parts are moderate with no special challenges. This is an all-around accessible anthem.
Performance options include adding a guitar to the accompaniment by following the chord symbols provided in the score. You may choose to use only guitar as the accompanying instrument. Stanza one may be sung as a solo.
