This easy SATB setting of Teasdale’s delightful text celebrates the gifts given to us in love by those we cherish. Her third love gave her a soul that delights in love. However, all of her other “loves” gave her gifts that she learned to appreciate as well. The melody and harmonies are simple, and the journey moves along toward an interesting ending. We never know where the journey of love will take us!
