I Will Be a Child of Peace

for TTBB Choir & Piano

Also available SATB or SSA

Published with Beckenhorst Press

I Will Be a Child of Peace is an arrangement of the Shaker Hymn tune, O Holy Father, which has been attributed to Alonzo Gilman of the Shaker Community in Alfred, Main in 1851. I was originally drawn to this song by the beautiful simplicity of the Shaker melody, unique 5/4 meter and, most importantly, the uplift text of a prayer for peace and purity. This piece is particularly suitable for times of uncertainty. Perfect as a warm, affirmative call or response to prayer.

Also available SATB or SSAA.

O Holy Father I will be

a child of peace and purity.

For well I know Thy hand will bless

the seeker after righteousness.
