English. Traditional Spiritual.
Slavery left scars on body and soul. Yet in many spirituals a sense of strength and resilience shines through. In this example, arranger Tom Fettke shows how the "blind man" and "I" are one and the same. As the singer in the old spiritual cries out for direction, so do we. Our cry becomes the means for transformation -- from despair, emotional brokenness, and hopelessness, to confidence, wholeness, and hope.
