This poignant anthem reminds us that as believers we share the story of Christ's redemption through loving actions and words of grace. Ideal for youth or adult choirs, the anthem's ABA form and memorable melody make the anthem a snap to teach and to learn. Modest vocal ranges and a recurring refrain add to an easy learning process.

Allen Pote has been a friend of student choir directors for over thirty years. His joyous music has provided many directors the "just right" selection for special times of need. If you recall his little masterpiece from the 1980's, "Many Gifts, One Spirit," then "Become God's Story" will tend to fit in the same place in your heart and memory.

The gentle, encouraging text is just what today's students need to hear. They are part of a larger story, regardless how many years - or how few - they have lived. If you are training a student conductor in your choir, this is a perfect selection for her or him to conduct. Perfect in every sense of the word: musically, textually, emotionally, spiritually.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Immediately likeable and approachable
Cons
A couple of musical inconsistencies which impede memory

This is a great text for youth. The choral parts are accessible and my youth choir enjoyed singing it. It was a meaningful moment for our congregation to hear our students declare this text.
