This anthem is the result of a good idea, superbly realized: to combine Isaac Watts's hymn text with the tune of 'O Waly Waly'. They fit like a glove, both in mood and in details of the word setting . . . The music could not have been arranged more simply with a unison, unaccompanied first verse, two-part second, SATB third, and unison with descant fourth, accompanied sparingly until the last verse. Simplicity here evokes profundity, thanks to the skill of the
arrangement. * Church Music Quarterly December 03 *
