Wedding Music

Twinkling recorder sounds are set against a tranquil melody by Bach.

Piano Duet:

 
Sheep may always graze in safety
when a shepherd guards them well
Sheep may always graze in safety
Sheep may always graze in safety
when a shepherd guards them well
when a shepherd guards them well

Led by wise and careful rulers
Men may live in peace and plenty
And enjoy their time on earth
Led by wise and careful rulers
Men may live in peace and plenty
Men may live in peace and plenty
And enjoy their time on earth.

Da capo
