Still With Thee

Pinterest new post announcement.jpg

for SATB a cappella Chorus

Text by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Beckenhorst Press - BP2204

Description

Harriet Beecher Stowe’s poetry comes to life in a beautiful new setting. Richly scored for SATB a cappella choir, the anthem exudes confidence, comfort, and assurance as it builds to the final statement, that in all circumstances, “I am with Thee." It makes a powerful statement of faith appropriate for concert or worship.

Text

Still, still with Thee, when purple morning breaketh, When the bird waketh and the shadows flee; Fairer than morning, lovelier than the daylight, Dawns the sweet consciousness, I am with Thee! When sinks the soul, subdued by toil, to slumber, Its closing eye looks up to Thee in prayer; Sweet the repose beneath the wings o'ershading, But sweeter still to wake and find Thee there. - Harriet Beecher Stowe
