"There Are Days" is an original gospel-style hymn, based on Isaiah 58:11.  In this contemplative choral arrangement, it is paired with the traditional hymn, "Down to the River to Pray."  Featuring both polyphonic and homophonic harmonies (and lots of great low alto notes!), this piece will give all the parts in your women's ensemble a moment to shine.

original hymn lyrics:
There are days / when my soul is in drought.
There are nights / when my spirit is weak.
There are weeks / when my bones keep breaking.
There are seasons / when my mouth's too dry to speak.
Then let me be / like a watered garden, / an everlasting spring I'll be.
Strengthen my bones / with your healing water / flowing like love through me.
