This warm and contemplative setting captures the modal origins of the famous American folk tune. The text focuses on the journey from this life to the eternal life. After the reflective tune is initially sung with the organ, an a cappella section follows, providing a nice contrast. The optional and easy instrumental part expands the sound and adds a pleasantly new dimension. Church choirs and congregations will undoubtedly connect with this soft and lovely music.
