The resoluteness of this original tune is a perfect fit for a Charles Wesley hymn recounting the story of Isaac and Abraham, evoking unswerving faith amid the test of sacrifice. The varied a cappella choral textures in each stanza produce an engaging reflection for congregations encountering this reading from the book of Genesis, particularly in Lenten liturgies or during the Easter Vigil.
