One of the recurring issues inherent in this project has been finding tunes that fit the traditional hymn format: ie. verse-and-verse-and-verse. I have consequently been led down paths of folk and roots more than I had expected, simply because those traditional styles also tend to neglect choruses.
Often I have failed even there, and ended up using snatches of the lyrics to create a chorus (eg. Abide With Me).
But sometimes, as is the case here, the problem is reversed: How can a hymn with a famous (and beloved) chorus/refrain be reframed without it feeling awkward and fake?
This is my story, this is my song;
Praising my Saviour all the day long.
Well, I extended it a bit and all, but I'm pretty pleased with how it worked out.
