This hymn tells of the journey and challenges faced by Mary and Joseph as
they await the birth of Jesus. Though the musical style of this piece is difficult
to categorize, one could say it brings a jazz feel to an intense and majestic
hymn text. There is another version of this song (show in related products below) that
is identical except that the verses are written for Palm/Passion Sunday texts.
Though there is no recording of the song with the Advent text, you
can follow this link for an audio sample
of the other version.
