More about Donnalynn Grunewald:
Most of my music is original. Because I have lived in small branches for most of my life, I try to write songs that can be performed by a small group or a choir of inexperienced singers.
Song background:

This started out as a simple little melody set to the text of the well-known hymn. I wrote the whole thing out, harmonized it, wrote the accompaniment and sat back to listen and review it. The chorus just didn’t flow the way I had written it. It worked mathmatically, but something was wrong. I could have left it, but the Spirit had a different idea. It took me a while to figure out how to “fix” it, but the Spirit was very insistent. So, sorry for the meter changes in the chorus…

The D major arrangement is the same, save for the key. This puts it a bit higher for singers, but most significantly, raises the key of the modulated verse to E major for your accompanist.

The text is by Folliott S. Pierpoint (1835-1917)
