Come, everyone, and join with us
in rousing songs of praise.
Sing out the honor of God's name
for all his glorious ways.
Say to our God, "How awesome, LORD,
are you in all you do.
Your enemies cringe down in fear,
then rise to worship you."
Dale Grotenhuis (PHH 4) composed ELEANOR (named after his wife) in 1985. It is published for the first time in the 1987 Psalter Hymnal. The tune features melodic devices such as repetition, sequence, and inversion; it is accompanied by part-writing that immediately suggests singing in harmony. ELEANOR requires crisp articulation of repeated tones and an energetic tempo.
