SATB arrangement with piano accompaniment and guitar chords arranged by Michael Lawrence, words and music by Margaret Becker and Keith Getty. Sample: Jesus draw me ever nearer as I labor thro' the storm. You have called me to this passage and I'll follow tho' I'm worn. May this journey be a blessing, may I rise on wings of faith; and at the end of my heart's testing, with your likeness let me wake.
With a slightly folk-song feel, this modern song of aspiration will find immediate acceptance with choirs of all backgrounds.
