The Prodigal Son

The song above, "The Prodigal Son," is a shape-note anthem taken from The Missouri Harmony. The words are by Isaac Watts (drawn from Luke 15) and the music is ascribed to Josiah Moore in The Kentucky Harmony, 1816. It is sung by our church's youth choir that my brother and I run. We sang it after the church service yesterday (the 17th). 

P.S. And yes, the camera was recording near the alto section...
