Levi has created a simple arrangement of a haunting Southern Harmony melody. The text speaks of strength and comfort with references to the Great Spirit, earth, sea and rest. The melody enhances these references with its simple intensity, legato singing and gentle phrases. The harmony is well-written and suitable for an intermediate choir. The flute parts are an important part of the piece, weaving through the melody and giving the image of a bird in flight.
