This early 19th century southern hymn is haunting in its flowing simplicity. Minnesota composer Axel Theimer preserves the beauty of this melody with a unison setting of verse one. This is followed by a two-part round in the second verse. In the final stanza, the three voices come together in homophony to capture the strength of the text, “And through eternity, I’ll sing on.” Medium
