About

This short anthem takes its text from the Old Testament book of Ruth. It is a statement of devotion and loyalty, and I have used the lines "Your people shall be my people and your God my God" as a refrain. To the biblical text I have added a concluding "Amen".


Dedication note

The original version (for SAB voices) was written for, and is dedicated to, Bruce Baker - a friend and musical colleague


Text note

Text from Ruth 1: 16-17
