Mark Hayes’ transcendent arrangement re-imagines this beloved hymn, transforming it into a powerful witness to the sacrifice and salvation of the cross. The stunning keyboard accompaniment features all of the drama and subtlety that fans of Mark’s music have come to expect. Hayes sets the middle verse in a minor modality underscoring Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. As the final stanza moves to a major key, the promise of being with God in heaven is made all the more real and glorious.
