Gary. At the congregation I grew up at, this would totally be a youth group favorite! And if it were in the Hymns of The Church, it would also get chosen by someone in the audience at every hymn sing, whether or not they had a history of being able to sing the Neopolitan, well.

I did find measures 2-3 and 8-9 a bit awkward. Having the last syllables of those words landing on the downbeat. Also in the penultimate measure, I could see the F to Bb jump getting “butchered”.

Just my observations after a few quick listen-throughs. I do rather enjoy this piece tho.
