This is my take on the old public domain hymn. It's an upbeat version that's been on my mind. My style will probably not be everyone's taste, but I play 'em the way they speak to me!! I will state right up front that I'm not totally satisfied with the vocals, but I have very limited access to my studio right now due to being out on the road (I had a very small window of time to record these last weekend). I plan to re-record them later. I still felt like posting though and I hope it speaks to someone! Thanks for listening!!

Beautifully re-harmonized. That modulation about 2:00 was especially sweet. Your vocals rising in expression throughout was a big part of what kept interest. Really nice. I like this version a lot.

Torrey,

Everything about this is good.

Nice arrangement. Good guitar. Good mix (love the punchy bass!)

I like the vocal!

The only way to make this better is to have a big gospel choir rockin' behind you!!! (I can hear the claps)

Excellent.

What a tune! Loving the 70's vibes here. I wouldn't have even known it was a hymn if you hadn't stated. Really professionally done smile Thanks for sharing!

We love it when an artist takes a public domain song to a new dimension.

You were able to retain the message and repackage into a fine production.

The vocal sounds great to us!! And, man, that guitar soars.

A very enjoyable listen(s)

Torrey,

J&B summed it up well- this has such great energy. Love the electric piano and of course your signature guitar chops and tone.
The vocal may be the better for less processing- sounds excellent to me.

I agree with Scott.
Excellent rendition of the hymn.
