This is one of those beautiful old folk-type songs that I have just been aching to arrange for quite a long time. During a month that James and Fran spent with us in the summer, it was inevitable that we ended up playing with it. It's a lovely expression of gratitude, joy and hope. The lyrics seem to have first appeared in "The New York Observer" in the mid-1800s, and the setting by Robert Lowry has since become a favorite standard hymn
