This beautiful hymn is one of trust and faith, building in confidence ‘till the night is gone.’ This arrangement follows that line of confidence. The melody begins unaccompanied, which is to say ‘alone’, and the eventual accompanying voices enter sombrely. Instead of a traditional final cadence, the ‘leading of the light’ continues, using the first four notes of the hymn as a motif that leads to a second, more positive statement of the melody, underscored by a walking motion. The positivity grows and lasts through a final grand statement of the hymn. A short meditative coda follows, and the arrangement ends with a solo note of reflection.
