Surely It Is God Who Saves Me (2009) is an extracted motet from the oratorio The Acts of the Apostles, commissioned by the Harvard University Choir.

Surely it is God who saves me; I will trust in him and not be afraid. For the Lord is my refuge and my defense, and he will become my Savior. With joy you shall draw water from the springs of salvation. And on that day you will say, “Give thanks to the Lord and call on his name; make his deeds known among the peoples; sing praises to the Lord, for he has done great things.” (Isaiah 12:2–5)
