There are times in life that bring unavoidable circumstances and our limited understanding must be directed to God. Mary Louise Bringle wrote this emotional text for a friend who was dealing with her mother's Alzheimer's desease, and the frailty that mortal bodies suffer. Set to the tune, FINLANDIA, this sensitive arrangement provides comfort to those who care for loved ones in these situations. The anthem builds to a hopeful conclusion and climax proclaiming, All joys remain, unshadowed light pervading. No valued deed will ever be undone.
