This is part of a larger, 14-octavo collection called Revival, G-9405, a series of traditional hymn arrangements for contemporary ensembles intended to lead and inspire the singing of the liturgical assembly. The texts of these timeless favorites are those found in the most recent GIA hymnals, but parishes and communities are encouraged to sing the words commonly sung in their worship.
