This moving anthem was designed for use on Mother's Day or Christian Family Sunday, but would be appropriate any time of the year. The piece is written for two-part (SA) voices with the congregation and men of the choir invited to join in the refrain. Brian Wren's stirring text compares various aspects of a mother's love for her child to God's love for His people -- God's guiding love, teaching love, grieving love, joyful love, birthing love, among many. This inspired work is certain to find a permanent home among the repertoire for Mother's Day.
