The beloved text is given a beautiful musical setting in standard hymn fashion: A unison verse, followed by a 4-part choral verse, ending with a unison verse featuring a soprano and/or tenor descant. The opening verse can be sung by a pair of soloists in a conversational way; the descant might prove effective with only a single voice, emphasizing the first-personsingular nature of the text.

Instrument parts are optional.
