The tender mercies of God's grace is the focus of this timeless Fanny Crosby text adapted and set to sensitive music. Sounding like a nostalgic early American hymn, this singable tune is well suited for the “journey of life” images contained in the poetry. Opportunities for full four part writing are peppered throughout along with simple unison statements. The lyric violin part is stunning and is included in the octavo. Duration: ca. 2:54.
