Text: Philip Paul Bliss.
The first verse is sung in unison by the men. The second verse is sung SATB. The 3rd verse is sung in unison by men, women or full choir. The hardest part for the choir is singing in double time while the piano is playing triplets. The piano part is difficult because of the key signature (D-flat) and the movement of the notes. The last verse is almost all 2 against 3 for the time. This piece is also arranged for TTBB (#00578) and as a solo in the collection "Sabbath Song" (#00434 - low voice and #00710 - medium voice).
