Unison voices, organ and flute
Composed by Carl Schalk. Sacred Anthem. Octavo. Published by Chorister's Guild (LO.CGA1089).

Item Number: LO.CGA1089

A lovely, poetic text by nineteenth-century writer Edwin Hodder and additional text by Carl Schalk offer simple and poignant lessons about the Bible. Each verse employs the use of simile to describe how God's Word is like various images found in nature. The straightforward comparisons provide an excellent framework whereby children can better understand the purpose of God's Word and also grow in their faith. An enchanting melody, accompanied by organ and flute, repeats on each verse of the piece underscoring a sense of simplicity and clarity found in the anthem's text.
