A very accessible and singable four part setting of this text from the New Zealand Anglican Prayer Book, specially commissioned by Neil and Sue Shroff for their 50th wedding anniversary. Neil, who is Director of Music at At Andrew's Church in Epsom wrote, "I am absolutely thrilled with your work – it is just the sort of piece I had imagined, except better!"

"The beautiful layers of the vocal lines building in texture, coupled with wonderful key changes create an inspiring immediacy that makes this song an absolute gem for choir and audience alike. A real favourite!"
– Gina Sanders, International Soprano and Director of King’s College Chapel Choir, Auckland.
