This hymn won first prize in the local section of the Settle Methodist Circuit Hymn Competition in 2001 . This hymn is especially meaningful as the farmers in the area had been suffering all year under the worry of Foot and Mouth, and some farms in Lancashire and Yorkshire had to be culled. The livelyhood of small farmers is still under threat.
