Rollo Dilworth set the traditional African-American spiritual in a rhythmic and vibrant gospel style setting. The chorus is playful and dance-like. The verses are set in a traditional call and response style with a layered bridge section that invites repetition and audience clapping. A great piano accompaniment invites your pianist to improvise or play as is. However, it also works well a cappella.

Also available: Two Part (can be combined with SATB)
