Written by Jeanne Cotter’s brother-in-law in response to the Columbine High School shooting in Littleton, Colorado, in 1999, this song has been sung at countless funerals, healing services, and vigils in response to tragedy. It is now available in a beautiful new arrangement from Jeanne, who describes the importance of such a composition: When a community gathers in the face of tragedy, “I’ll Walk by Your Side” provides the emotional space where both unspeakable grief and fervent hope are reverently held together in prayer.

For cantor or soloist.
