Lutheran Worship 347 Text: Oswald Allen, 1816-78, alt. Tune: "ANTHES" , J.A. Anthes, 1789-1842 Alternative Hymns: Lutheran Worship 345, "Come Unto Me, Ye Weary"Score
Comments: The words to this hymn have such a sweet yearning and powerful invitation to them, and this arrangement replaces the four-square march of the original song with a sweeter, lingering feel. We often trade the verses off between our singers and encourage them to take interpretive liberties when it's their turn.
The alternative hymn for this melody is also gorgeous and we caught a recording of that recently.
