From our Celebrating Grace hymnal series comes a hymn anthem that provides a much needed choral resource for children's emphasis days. Intensely relevant poetry reminds of our responsibility to “bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” A delicate and tuneful melody supports the loving spirit of the text, and accessible part-writing keeps the focus on the expressive potential of this useful anthem!

As wonderful as the "See the Children" text is - and it IS lovely - this anthem may actually be an even better setting of its secondary text (shown in italics below primary text) is "Love Divine, All Loves Excelling." I am partial to the latter because the music just lifts this old, block, stately text to a new level of warmth, sensitivity, assurance, hope, and grace. Your students and/or adults will enjoy this arrangement; it works well in any number of settings!

The Bottom Line

Pros
Many lovely qualities musically as well as textually
Cons
None noted .. experiement with your group to make certain tempo is not too slow
