From Plank Road Publishing

by Teresa Jennings

This thought-provoking song ties in well with a broader study unit on Abraham Lincoln. It can serve as a reinforcement of learning or as a catalyst for discussion. For example, what was his burden? What does "derision" mean? What decisions did President Lincoln have to make? How did he set all of us free (as opposed to just the slaves)? It is a wonderful example of using music across the curriculum. The song itself is gentle and easygoing with a light rock/pop feel to it. The melody is somewhat syncopated, but in a natural way, so it feels simpler than it looks. The tune is unison throughout so as not to distract from the message. (from Music K-8, Vol. 14, No. 3)
