His Mighty Love Is Without End (SATB)

His Mighty Love Is Without End (2009) for SATB Choir and Piano [5:00]
~ Poetry based on 2 Chronicles 20

Program Notes: The text of 2 Chronicles 20, one of my favorite Biblical passages, is the basis for this dramatic and pictorial setting of a decisive battle between the Hebrews and their enemies. In this Scriptural passage, God miraculously delivers Israel from three enemy armies by having the Hebrews march into battle with a choir leading the way. The two main motives are heard at the beginning of the work, in the alto solo on the words “His mighty love is without end,” and in the entrance of the piano. These motives recur throughout and are transformed in character as God turns Israel’s depair and hopelessness to exuberant joy.

His Mighty Love Is Without End
by Melody Dawning

Sing praise to the Lord of Heaven
His mighty love is without end

Give thanks to the God of Jacob
His mighty love is without end

King against tyrants
Army against hordes
Israel trembles before her wicked foes
A prayer of faith
A plea for guidance
Surely God will save the ones He chose

Sing praise to the Lord of Heaven
His mighty love is without end

Give thanks to the God of Jacob
His mighty love is without end

No need to fight
No reason to fear
Stand still and watch what God will do
Bow low before Him
Shout loud your praise
O Israel, God is with you!

Sing praise to the Lord of Heaven
His mighty love is without end

Give thanks to the God of Jacob
His mighty love is without end

Singers on the front line
Soldiers behind
As worship must precede victory
Chaos, confusion
Disorder, delusion
O Israel, God has defeated your enemies!

Sing praise to the Lord of Heaven
His mighty love is without end

Give thanks to the God of Jacob
His mighty love is without end
