This is a highly practical and attractive, yet quite simple, song for anointing during confirmation. As a plus, it is bilingual. The English refrain is enriched by a Spanish, musically independent descant. The verses-almost like a litany of the saints-call out a long list of Christian names (Anglo and Hispanic) to which the eventual response is “Come and be sealed.” Other names can easily be added or substituted, even those of the entire class.
