This is the third time I’ve recorded this melody, the first two were Rejoice, “Rejoice This Happy Morn” and “All Hail to Thee This Blessed Morn” back in August of last year.

Interestingly, like “All Hail to Thee This Blessed Morn” this is another setting of a Birgitte Cathrine Boyle text.

I do like this hymn, though I had a hard time with the improvisation on the second verse. Distracted, I think, what with the job situation, and all. That, and, the melody is just so iconic, it’s hard to think of something else which fits.
