For many worshipping churches, this strong version of a traditional hymn is a treasured song of the journey. Many existing arrangements of this time-honored song are set in major but this creative new adaptation utilizes the minor variant. From Bound for Glory, this setting brings freshness to the familiar and adds depth to the whole concept. A distinctive three-part men's section is featured in one verse with stunning results, later trading places with an angelic women's moment that shines with brilliance. Every measure is packed with beauty! Score and Parts (pno, perc 1-2, vn 1-2, va, vc, db) available as a digital download.

Written with a Celtic feel, this piece can feature strings and percussion for an exciting accompaniment that will draw the audience and singers in. With its minor tonality and full voicing (3-pt men followed by 3-pt women) this is a completely new arrangement of this timeless hymn without losing the familiarity that audiences will enjoy. Highly recommended, especially with strings.
