The mercy seat of the scripture was a central place of worship; a place where God lived. This anthem invites the listener to bring their prayers to the place where God can hear them and provide comfort. The optional orchestration lends warmth to this emotion-filled text.
This peace-filled arrangement by the late Johnnie Carl is a welcome addition to every choral library. Sung by choir and congregation and beautifully orchestrated, this arrangement is at once calming and majestic.
