Out in the Fields with God
by Wendell Glick
SATB a cappella – CP 1482 – 2:25
Elizabeth Browning wrote the poem and Wendell Glick gave it an exquisite setting.
We all encounter the stresses of day to day living – which can often bring us down. But by keeping our faith we can find light in the darkness, hope in the midst of despair, love in the midst of hatred and success in the midst of failure. This composition expresses the inspiration we can receive from the nature God has created for us.
