Composer Timothy Shaw takes the original text by Elizabeth Prentiss (1856) and sets it to his own original music. The result is a beautifully written, highly singable melody in which the voices and accompaniment are intertwined. Even though this was written by Prentiss during a period of grief and illness, her text speaks to us as an encouraging testimony of faith.
You can view the score and listen to a very fine recording of the piece on Pepper’s website (click here). Or, you can hear that same recording below:
