This arrangement begins with either a treble solo, or with all sopranos, it then broadens into a rich setting of the following stanzas, and ends with a hushed treatment of the text And our eyes at last shall see him.

    This is a great arrangement. I love beginning the song with a soprano solo (think boy choir, while singing). Then the way the piece is divided with Soprano/Alto on v.2 and TTBB on v. 3 then SATB for the final verse.
