This is a wide, sweeping and pastoral arrangement of this timeless hymn arranged in a John Barry (Dances With Wolves, Out of Africa) sort of style.

Highly praised and incredibly gifted arranger and orchestrator Jim Gray asked Jeff Anderson to create an arrangement for The Nashville Praise Symphony. The Nashville Praise Symphony (NPS) is an auditioned orchestral group under the direction of Camp Kirkland.

After NPS performed this arrangement for a season, Jeff is excited to now make this arrangement available for purchase. Designed for full orchestra, this beautiful, peaceful arrangement would serve perfectly as an offertory or set-up for a message/sermon.
