This is a song John Harrison wrote some years ago now when teaching in a public school. He wanted to write something for his older students to sing that would have the feeling of a gospel song without espousing any particular religion or set of beliefs. He’s been teaching it again recently in light of the political situation in the US and around the world. On the recording it’s sung by a quartet, but it’s intended to sung by a chorus.
