Psalm 23, Psalm 48, Psalm 84, Psalm 121, Ecclesiastes 3:1-15, Ecclesiastes 12:1-7, Isaiah 58:11, John 16:5-15, Romans 5:1-5, Hebrews 11:13-16.

Sheer poetry! This anthem of timeless beauty opens quietly with a haunting, folk-like melody sung by a soloist (opt. section) and the simplest of accompaniments. Singing of the pilgrim on life’s journey, it gradually builds through powerful choral writing: "Christ, my one Lord and Master, guide each step of my way." The return of the soloist signals the simple yet dramatic farewell.
