This beautiful adaptation for handbells stays true to the original tune, and it would be possible to use mm. 1-28 as a handbell introduction to congregational singing of the hymn. McFadden's arrangement begins and ends softly, with a broad full center section in which shakes and robust chords occur. The piece was written for an ordination service, and both secular and sacred choirs will find multiple uses for this setting. AGEHR Level III.
