Based on a 4th century text that speaks of Christ walking ahead of us, "watching, guiding, challenging now and evermore." This is an appropriate setting for not only choral benedictions, but also for graduation Sundays, and weddings. Part of the YouthCUE Series.

This benediction anthem features a beautiful melody and gentle, supportive accompaniment. Although nicely singable for any age group, young voices find the setting to be quite enjoyable and appealing. Student choirs gravitate to this selection and are always positive about rehearsing and performing it.

The music provides lessons for sustained, flowing lines and keeping energy through long phrases. The text provides opportunities for discussion about the way Christ is always with us, guiding us, providing us direction, and challenging us to be at our best in throughout our futures. You and your students will enjoy putting this Benediction to good use in worship and concerts.
