Product Description
This song is a simple chorale based on the story of Ruth and Naomi from the Book of Ruth in the Bible. A recording is included with two female voices and piano. The recording includes alto and soprano on the verses, unison on the chorus. This song is intended for parochial school teachers to increase their students' knowledge of the Old Testament. The theme of the song is that God stands by us always, just as Ruth stayed with Naomi. This song is a good introduction to the Book of Ruth, but Boaz is not mentioned, so the teacher may wish to share the conclusion of the story with his/her students. The uneven, simple rhythms of this song can be used to teach quarter note and half note values. Melismas present a slight challenge in a few measures. The entire song can be sung in unison, or done as suggested on the recording. Purchaser is given the right to use this piece as a congregational hymn and/or an adult choir anthem as well. Suggested use is for choir to sing the verses, with congregation joining on the refrain.
