    Its not easy to play.. you have to have big hands... i will adjust it so those with a smaller reach can play it. Otherwise if you are pedalable (new cool word for those who can play pedals) and you play all your hymns in the best fashion, you play the bass line in the pedal, and then it is a piece of cake.

    OK... here is easy version which addresses large spreads for those who don't play the bass in the pedals. :)

    Another member recently PM'd me for this piece and it depresses me to think that this and many more of my pieces sit on my computer being unsung. I cannot bear for them to remain silent. Please sing them and give Our Dear Lady her proper due.

    Put the notes in your music application and find the words, because they too are so beautiful and should not be left unsung.

    Thank you Tomboysuze for bringing me to the awareness of this most wonderful and beautiful tune.

    Link has been broken... here is the music with space for you to plug in the text of your choosing, although the text mentioned above works best.
