This work is occasionally referenced as a "Baptismal Shout," because the chorus describes being immersed in the sea. 

Easy to learn, each verse features a section solo, while the remaining parts interject an exuberant unison "Hallelujah" to accompany the section solos.


The four-part variable voicing chart suggests a variety of voicing options for different age groups.
