Lowell Mason's classic standard hymn, made more familiar by its use in the movie, Titanic, has been arranged in a striking setting by one of the best hymn arrangers in church music. Co-arranged with friend and church pianist, Walter Knapp, this arrangement will gain greatly in impact if the optional string parts are employed. The comforting and prayerful thoughts of the text are reflected in the moving and emotional choral writing of this arrangement. This is a stunning setting of a great American hymn.
