Bless This House : SATB : Allan Robert Petker : Allan Robert Petker : Sheet Music : 00117274 : 884088886936

Allan Robert Petker : Bless This House

Here is a rebel piece of music that combines traditional sacred music with praise music. Beginning with the organ and a stately choir the text from II Chronicles 7:15-16 honors when God is with us in our sacred space. A praise band feel takes over and introduces a simple song (sung by children or praise singers). Next thing you know the choir and organ bring in two traditional hymns (Come Thou Fount and Joyful, Joyful) that all fit together. God is truly in this house for all people of all musical styles.
