    This feels really good and solid to me. Looks quite singable and I think a congregation would enjoy it.

    To my ear, the harmony at “Father but by” feels a bit unstable and tenuous. That may be because the first chord is an inversion, and the second and third are “clustery” chords. They follow a very standard, stable harmonization, but depart from it starting on a downbeat, so it feels a bit aimless until it gets to “by me.” I think it’s singable, but it will probably not want to tune.

    That’s all I can see that I’d suggest looking deeper into.

    Thank you for the feedback. I’m planning to use it in the near future, so I’ll “try it” and then revise as needed.

    After using it at an event this weekend, here is revised version. The “Father but by me” phrase has less movement, but it more stable harmonically.
