The melody moves to the bass in the second stanza, and the use of handchimes is an option. The malleted accompaniment returns for the joyous third stanza, which also features a treble descant. Parts for optional Bb, C, or F treble instrument, or C bass instrument are included.
Voicing: 2 or 3 octaves handbells with optional Bb, C or F treble or C bass instrument
