The first verse of this simple yet very tasteful medley uses part of the first verse of "Dearest Children, God is Near You" and is followed by the hymn "How Gentle God's Command." This hymn lets the men have the melody for the first half accompanied by the woman humming and then the full choir is used. The 3rd hymn, "God's Daily Care" is first sung by the women as a duet followed by the full choir. The piano gets to have an interlude and the medley is concluded with the rest of the first verse of "Dearest Children" along with the 3rd verse of that hymn.
