This traditional hymn by Charles Wesley written in 1749 on the eleventh anniversary of his conversion to Christ. It is believed to have been inspired by a remark made by a Moravian leader, Peter Bohler who said, "Had I a thousand tongues, I would praise Christ Jesus with all of them."

This is one of the most well-known of the 6,500 hymn texts written by Wesley.
Scored for 13 piece brass ensemble, I envision this piece to be played as the 'opener' of a concert or church service.

This hymn is believed to have been authored by Saint Bernard, abbot of the monastery of Clairvaux, France. It was translated into German in 1656, and into English in 1830.

The tune, "Passion Chorale" was written by Hans Leo Hassler, and later harmonized by Johann Sebastian Bach.

J. S. Bach himself said, "the aim and final reason of all music should be nothing else but the glory of God and the refreshment of the spirit." Many of his compositions began with the inscription, "Jesus, help me!" and at their close, "To God alone be the praise!"

This is an antiphonal treatment of the hymn intended to be played with a brass sextet on one side of the auditorium (2 Trumpets, 2 Horns, 2 Trombones) and a brass septet on the other (2 Trumpets, 2 Horns, 2 Trombones, 1 Tuba).
