I call this piece the ultimate “head-tilter” – young women everywhere will tilt their heads and sigh “Awwwww!” when they are introduced to this lovely arrangement. This is a wonderful early introduction to part singing. The refrain is in unison and each verse is gently split into three parts with very predictable harmonies. The text of the song reassures the singer that they are loved and never alone. The B section hints at the classic children’s prayer, “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.” This is a sweet, tender piece that would be perfect for middle school or early high school young women. Rating: Easy
