by Frederick Frahm. For SSATBB chorus with tenor solo, unaccompanied. Text drawn from the Latin hymn and ‘Leaves of Grass’ by Walt Whitman (Song of Myself, no. 41).
Why should I wish to see God better than this day?
I see something of God each hour,
and each moment then,
In the faces of men and women I see God,
and in my own face in the glass;
I find letters from God dropped in the street,
and every one is signed by God’s name,
And I leave them where they are,
for I know that others will come forever and ever.
