About I Am the Way:
I Am the Way (2005) is a contemporary-style hymn, with text based on John 14:1-14. It is composed with a single line of vocal music, so that it can be sung by any combination of Cantor, unison Choir, and Assembly, although it does offer an optional descant in the Refrain for the higher voices in the Choir, if desired. This piece provides an upbeat take on a familiar Biblical passage.
