From the Revival collection (octavo packet G-9405; spiral-bound G-9538), this arrangement uses the traditional tune FOUNDATION. The accompaniment has a folk quality that is both compelling and comforting. For added texture (as with all of the pieces in Revival), the final stanza of this hymn can be sung in unison, and includes an alternate harmonization of the accompaniment with a soprano descant.
