This setting of the haunting Appalachian folk melody uses a striking text written in 1876 by Mary Ann Pepper Kidder. Musically it creates easy, clean harmonies that makes the singers and listeners concentrate on the numerous questions it presents, with the answer being “O, how praying rests the weary! Prayer will change the night to day.”
