Steadfast (2001)

GS 2002 (publ. 2003)
Duration: approx. 3:00 

This march was requested by David Daws for the South-Western Divisional Music School of 2001 at which he was guest conductor.

Steadfast is a bright, energetic march and the songs within (You can’t stop God from loving you and Will your anchor hold?) suit the quick tempo.

In terms of the theme, the songs pick up on God’s steadfast and unconditional love for humankind. 

 

You can’t stop God from loving you
Though you may disobey him,
You can’t stop God from loving you,
However you betray him;
From love like this no power on earth
The human heart can sever,
You can’t stop God from loving you,
Not God—not now, nor ever.

John Gowans (1934-2012)
SA Songbook 854 (verse 3)
Tune: You can't stop God from loving you (TB 361)

We have an anchor that keeps the soul
Steadfast and sure while the billows roll;
Fastened to the rock which cannot move,
Grounded firm and deep in the Saviour's love.

Priscilla Jane Owens (1829-1907)
SA Songbook 280 (chorus)
Tune: Will your anchor hold? (TB 60)
