BEAUTY IS BEFORE ME

by Penny Blake

Home > Composers > Penny Blake > BEAUTY IS BEFORE ME

SATB above, SSAA below

The lovely flowing quality of this composition and the soaring harmonies evoke a deep spirit of reverence. The message, from an ancient Navaho text, is relevant, uplifting, and sure to touch any singer and listener.

Beauty is before me
and beauty is behind me

Above me, above me
and hovers the beautiful

I am surrounded by it
I am immersed in it

In my youth, I am aware of it
and in old age I shall walk quietly – the beautiful trail

In beauty it is begun
in beauty it is ended
before me, behind me
and below.
