Blessing | SATB Chorus a cappella | 3.5'
Blessing, a prayer for SATB chorus, combines two texts: one by the nineteenth-century Swiss philosopher Henri Frederic Amiel, and the Doxology.

"Life is short, and we do not have much time
to gladden the hearts of those
who make this earthly pilgrimage with us.
So be swift to love, and make haste to do kindness.
And the blessing of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
be upon you this day, and always. Amen."
—Henri Frederic Amiel and the Doxology,
as adapted by the Rev. Elizabeth Kaeton
