Designed for baptisms and child dedication services, this tender anthem welcomes children into the life of the church. Each of the anthem's four stanzas celebrates Christ's love for children and the churches promise to help them grow in his love. Any choir of unison voices can easily sing the simple melody, and the option for congregational participation on the final stanza allows everyone a chance to share their message of commitment through song.
Voicing: Unison with organ and optional congregation
Composer: John W. Semingson
