This piece could be successfully used with both boys or girls choirs. It is a partner song combining Peace Like a River and Down by the Riverside. All religious connotations in the text have been removed, making it suitable for public school use. There are a few measures of counterpoint that serve as a great introduction but are not daunting. The two parts are unique enough that the singers will be able to hold their own part easily. The vocal parts are supported, though not doubled, by the piano. Down by the Riverside makes a great closing number.
