Notes

STANDING is a call-and-response tune; the Psalter Hymnal has marked clearly the solo lead parts and the congregational-response parts, which are to be sung in harmony. Since most African American spirituals were originally sung unaccompanied, have the choir or even the congregation hum the accompaniment to the solo lines.

--Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
