A sensitive setting of the early American tune PROSPECT for unison choir (or soloist) accompanied only by a solo violin. The well-known text is by the 19th-century hymnwriter Horatius Bonar, and the lovely accompaniment is well within the reach of high-school-age violinists.

Anthem text
O Love of God, how strong and true,
eternal and yet ever new;
uncomprehended and unbought,
beyond all knowledge and all thought.

O wide-embracing, wondrous Love,
we read thee in the sky above;
we read thee in the earth below,
in seas that swell and streams that flow.

We read thy power to bless and save
e'en in the darkness of the grave;
still more in resurrection light
we read the fullness of thy might.

-Horatius Bonar
