Composer's Notes:

My wife and I were asked to write a work based on Ephesians 2:19-21 for the 90th anniversary of our congregation in 1998. The complete text for the anthem is printed below. The work can be accompanied by two trumpets (B-flat) , two trombones and organ. Flute, French horn, and tuba parts are available but are also cued in the organ part.

 

You are no longer strangers, you belong
With all the saints to the abundant house
Of God, which still is being built upon
The works and words of all who've gone before,
But chiefly on the one, the cornerstone:
Jesus Christ, the carpenter of love.
In Christ our stubborn wills are joined as one.
In Christ our meager faith is made to grow
Into a temple rare and beautiful,
As Jesus takes our very spirit-lives
And builds them up together in the air:
A consecrated vessel for God's love.
