Thy Grand Redemption

Festival Arrangement

Thy Grand Redemption

Marcus Venables has written this concert item around the hymn tune Rachie and using the words Who is on the Lords side. The words to the song are both asking a question and calling believers to stand for Christ. The music reflects this with fragments of the tune being left unanswered, as well as a hint of militaristic styled writing. As the music ebbs and flows it eventually builds to a rousing conclusion with a united statement of the chorus.

By Thy grand redemption,
By Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side;
Savior, we are Thine.
