"I'm gonna lay down my heavy load" (in the By an by) is the theme of this fantastic spiritual, wonderfully captured in this arrangement for two-part voices and piano. Its upbeat, syncopated melody utilizes a pentatonic scale and rhythms with a swing feel. Partnered with the well-known gospel jewel When the Morning Comes, choirs of all abilities will sound phenomenal when singing this concert-closing tune.
