All My Trials, Lord (McIntyre)
Choral Anthem: SATB, a cappella
Words: Jamaican Spiritual
Music: Bahamian Lullaby; arr. Dean McIntyre, 2013
The words and music of this familiar song come from its popularity as a social protest song in the 1950s and 60s, with recorded versions by Peter, Paul and Mary; The Kingston Trio; Joan Baez; and others. The message of hope for Christians is that, regardless of how bleak, troubling or challenging a situation may be, that struggle will "soon be over."
