Dusty and Patty, thanks.  I also know this tune as "There's  Wideness in God's Mercy.". Which is something to think about. What does "wideness" in mercy actually mean?

That tempo marking is kind of interesting...

NIce job, Bob. You have a gift for making a simple tune sound interesting by vayring verses.  This is one of my favorite tunes, having first learned it after watching the Ken Burns documentary on Lewis and Clark, which uses this tune as the main theme, with fiddle and mandolin versions throughout the piece.

I arranged a version of this tune and use it to teach left-hand techniques such as slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs.

You might be interested in this old 19th-century arrangement, especially the way the tempo is described on the upper left side of the music.

Really nice job on this, Bob. This tune is used for the hymn Come, All Christians, Be Committed, #371 in the 2008 Baptist Hymnal. This tune is also used for other hymns. You did a fine job on this. Thanks for posting. I had this tune stuck in my head for quite a while and couldn't quite put my finger on it. Thanks for clearing up my foggy mindhappys

I love the Sacred Harp tunes and you played it very beautifully. Lovely sounding JI dulcimer too. I can't imagine this one sounding more upbeat and energetic. Like the way you varied it as well.
