God, Bless My Family
- Shawnee Press
This child's prayer seeks God's blessings for families and all those who "watch over me as I grow." Written especially for older elementary choirs, the anthem fits perfectly with any service having a family theme, especially Mother's Day or Father's Day. The familiar DIX tune and poignant text from the treasured hymn, For the Beauty of the Earth,
are also incorporated thanking God for the gift of "human love."
