Scripture: Genesis 1:31; Matthew 4:23, 13:54-56; John 19:30

A significant text and a compelling melody combine to create a moving testament of grace. Set in three tableaus from the life of Christ, the text employs sacred metaphor, connecting the listener to Jesus as Carpenter, Healer and Redeemer. Based upon a folk song, the music moves from gentle beauty to sections that are powerful and dramatic. The final lines of “it is finished, it is good,” bring an emotive completion to the great story of grace. Available separately: SATB, StudioTrax CD, Orchestration (Score and parts for alto recorder, oboe/english horn, clarinet 1&2, bassoon, horn 1&2, trumpets 1-3, trombone 1&2, tuba, timpani, percussion 1&2, harp, piano, violin 1&2, viola, cello, double bass). Duration: ca. 4:28.
