Softly And Tenderly by Wilder Adkins

Preparing for a funeral on Wednesday, part of my reflections are the lyrics to the hymn Softly And Tenderly.
We’re not singing it, but its part of what was desired for inclusion, so I’ll weave it in somewhere.
Last week I came across the music of Wilder Adkins.
Here’s his rendition of the song from his 2019 album In This Pilgrim Way.

Softly And Tenderly by Parton, Harris, And Ronstadt

This rendition of Softly And Tenderly from Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, and Linda Ronstadt was never released.
I think it may have been for a third, uncompleted Trio album.
The lead vocals are shared among the three.
