This setting continues a series of pieces using texts from the tradition of the African-American spirituals. It uses typical melodic and rhythmic ideas from pieces in that tradition. The text focuses on the idea, found in Psalm 23, of walking 'through the valley of the shadow of death.' If Jesus is our leader, then we need fear nothing, and we shall walk in peace.
