    This song is great! We're singing it in our choir and the harmony gives chills down your spine. The accompaniment sounds terrific!

    We sang this at NBMS for contest. It sounded really nice and it wasn't too hard to learn either. The piano arrangement is really pretty, and fits the song perfectly...
