"Softly and Tenderly"

I have been asked to sing at the funeral of the son of a ward member, to be held midweek. The ward member's wife requested this song,  knowing that I love it, as does she. It's a beautiful old gospel tune, and I've sung it once before at a graveside service with Carol.

You'll have to click on the link - the embedding has been disabled - to hear Hank Williams singing his version. Although I'll be singing it with piano accompaniment, I would like to add it to my guitar repertoire. The melody and lyrics are touching.
