The image of God seated on a throne higher than oceans or floodwaters in Jehova Oa Busa tells us that faith holds the faithful up through all of life’s turbulence, and the flowing, rising and falling melodic lines in triple metre beautifully convey this message of spiritual security. Of the five verses of Psalm 93 in the Christian Old Testament, Moerane chose verses 1, 4, 5, adapted them, and added, deleted, and repeated words in order to create a three-verse hymn or anthem. With pauses and rests between verses 1 and 2, he clearly imagined the song for church use, and the Soprano line is wonderfully mellifluous to sing.
