A favorite hymn from The Sacred Harp for many people, the opening measures are reflective of the version that was originally published, but then Heider expands the piece in a style that brings to mind the great choral settings of shape-note tunes. There is divisi in all parts as the piece progresses, but much of it is simply doubling of the melody in octaves. A great choral anthem for worship, but also a crowd pleaser for concerts!
