The refrain is inspired by the images contained in Jeremiah 23:3–6 and alludes to the “Good Shepherd” passage of John 10. Scored for SATB choir with cantor, this piece is suitable for use on the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time of Year B, as well as other liturgies with the scriptural theme of shepherd. The messianic imagery makes it ideal for use in funerals and celebrations of anointing, as well as throughout the season of Advent.
