This gospel piece takes us through a journey that asks, "Why was I born," and concludes, "I was born to love the Lord . . . [and] if I love God, I can love all people." A solidly choral piece with a nicely scored accompaniment and a strong choral finish. The piece begins and ends, however, with an appealing piano solo.
