Thank you for sharing this beautiful song - the timing was perfect, as you know I have a heavy heart right now.  I always love the added artwork!  Your daughter does a wonderful job with your videos!

Thanks, Gordon, for your kind remarks. As usual you are very observant. The seascape picture is of the Marginal Way in Oguquit, Me. The overcast day sort of fit the mood of the song.  I used the melody string for the first time around and then mostly the middle string and bass string for variety when playing the straight out melody the second time.

Beautiful sound from that baritone dulcimer, John! It sure suits your voice. Makes it way easier to hit the high notes! Thanks for sharing this lovely old spiritual, your art work is an added bonus.
