Description
We Will All Sing Hallelujahs! is a setting of the poem Abhá! by Keith Bayliss. It is written for soprano and baritone solos, SATB choir with an orchestra of piano, 2 percussionists and strings. It lasts just over 8 minutes.

The poem describes the effect of spreading Holy Scriptures to all people, how the world and the ‘brotherhood of man’ would be a much safer and happier place to be. Although specifically addressing this from a Bahá’í point of view, the message is equally applicable to all religious beliefs and principals. The title of the original poem, Abhá!, is the Arabic for ‘The Most Glorious’. The poem is in three verses, each ending with a repetitive statement, ‘…We will all sing hallelujahs, The Truth! The One! Abhá!’ and these lines are treated as a refrain in this setting.
