From its first statement by the children's choir, the simple beauty and power of Charles C. Converse's classic theme grabs hold and doesn't let go as the piece builds to a thrilling full-gospel conclusion. In the tradition of Joel Raney's setting of "Jesus Loves Me" and "This Little light of Mine" this new setting is the perfect combination of new material, a favorite hymn, adult and children's voices, and an exciting blues-gospel track.
