In this traditional spiritual tune, Schackley uses a lively setting with a Latin flair. The melody is catchy and enjoyable to sing but there are some tricky syncopations that are best taught correctly right away. The anthem goes through some clever variations and everyone gets a crack at the melody before it builds to an ending full of smiles.
