35011459, SATB, $2.50
This long-time favorite gets a "shot in the arm" from Mark Hayes with his addition of a relaxed, gospel shuffle feel to the traditional 6/8 meter and some jazz sounds to the traditional harmonies. The arrangement retains the hymn’s strophic form, but each verse receives a unique treatment. Though the 4-part sections are lush with those jazz harmonies, they are not difficult, and ample unison and 2-part writing make this easy and enjoyable to learn. The piano accompaniment is just plain fun and is great as the only accompaniment or with rhythm and flugelhorns. Programmable in any type of service, this is one anthem your congregation will ask to hear again and again – and your choir will be happy to oblige!
