Life is a Journey

By Joseph M. Martin

With a quiet invitation to follow, this song reminds the listener of the long, winding path of life. “Oh, who will come and go with me” gives way to an original tune and text with the tenderness of remembrance as the poem reflects on the blessings of life with thanksgiving. Ultimately, a crescendo and modulation transform the theme into a portrait of the Shepherd who “stays by our side... our Teacher and Guide,” as we affirm that we never walk alone. The composition ends with a whispered recollection of the PROMISED LAND opening.
