Opening with Richard Phillips' setting of Psalm 95, 'Sing for Joy', the music is vibrant and full of energy, and captures the spirit of the well known words of Scripture. The music then moves into a more reflective section that includes Howard Davies' emotive song melody 'Lord, you know that we love you' and Laurie Klein's worship song 'I love you Lord'.

A re-statement of the opening Psalm setting follows and this, in turn, leads into a dramatic and powerful finale that combines two pivotal statements drawn from the slower, reflective section: 'I love you lord, and I lift my voice to worship you, O my soul rejoice' and 'Lord, you know that we love you' with a final flourish from Psalm 95: 'Come let us sing joy to the Lord!'
