This anthem flows like a gentle stream, bringing with it the peace and assurance that God is always with us. The accompaniment propels the singing through the lines, thus the director can easily inspire the students to sing with long, flowing phrases. This piece is timeless and appropriate for a wide array of settings in worship and performance.

The Bottom Line

Pros
Gentle, singable lines highlight paraphrased biblical text
Cons
Tessitura in places can be a bit high for male voices
