With a text based on the work of Christian mystic Julian of Norwich, this provocative work for organ and four-part choir compares God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit to a wise, loving, and merciful mother. Within the text is also a gentle prayer that our faith be firmly rooted and encouraged to grow and flourish. The organ accompaniment of this resolute hymn fully supports and moves with the vocal parts.
