Length of song: 3:25

Song style/genre: Midtempo gospel

Key(s): E minor to C major to F major

Note range (Low/High): varies with choral part

Arrangements available: This song can be done as a solo piece or by a chorus. The choral version is for SATB, but this arrangement should be considered flexible. It can be adapted as needed to groups of varying sizes and voice ranges. For example, if you lack a Bass singer, that part can be eliminated or altered to fit a Baritone or Tenor who can reach down. A Tenor who can sing up can take some of the Alto notes and so on. Solos can be taken by different singers than indicated in the score, assigned to the same singer(s) throughout or shared by more than one singer within a given vocal range.

About the song: An inspirational gospel song about the need to make your life anew when challenged by a world of rapid & often devastating change. You never know what tomorrow will bring.

Gender point of view: Irrelevant
