Sacred Music

I Will Praise Your Name Forever

On February 24, 2016, His Excellency, Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of the Diocese of Raleigh commissioned the Diocesan Director of Music, Mr. Michael J. Accurso, to compose I Will Praise Your Name Forever for the dedication of Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral to take place on July 26, 2017. This hymn draws upon the text of Psalm 145 and was chosen by the composer because of its significant ties with the name of the new Cathedral.

Below you will find the text available in eight languages with supplementary material for congregation, choir, keyboard, guitar, brass, and timpani. All parishes within the Diocese of Raleigh are asked to use it in the upcoming year so that the faithful can learn it and are able to participate in the singing of the hymn at the dedication with full heart and voice. One aspect to note is that all of the language settings include the refrain set in English as this will be the language in which it will be sung at the dedication liturgy.
