SATB a cappella music includes optional body percussion. This piece is great as a colorful addition to a concert or worship service. Soulful feel incorporates the whole singer and expresses a timeless text of compassion, encouraging us to bear one another's burdens and to cast our cares upon the Lord.

The Bottom Line
