Description: In gratitude for family in uncertain times. Moderate difficulty. The soprano part sits on the high side, given the text, so encourage singers to modify vowels if necessary. If pitch is an issue during the opening a cappella section, the piano can provide light support. At the end, the 2nd soprano and 1st alto parts double each other. Divide the notes as best fits the ranges of your voices and the number in each section. All altos can sing alto one, with the sopranos doing the split, for instance. Enjoy!

Original text and translations
I love the little path your feet have made
between the door and shed.
It says you were here,
and here you'll stay.
And the grass loves summer light too much
to mind a little wear.
Smile on, My Heart.
Tread deeply there.
