For the most part, this is a straightforward setting of the familiar nettleton hymn tune—the choirs sing some unison, the assembly sings along on some verses, and there is a descant, as well as an a cappella third verse. But the harmonies, particularly on that third verse, are refreshing. And the fanfare for trumpet, with a toccata-like organ accompaniment, provides a fitting beginning and end to the piece.
