In this sample, you will hear the organ alone playing the SATB intro.  The enhanced piano accompaniment joins in for the first sample verse.  The instrumental countermelody, played by a violin, joins for the second sample verse.  Until the last two lines, the countermelody follows the alto melody of this hymn but diverges at the end.  Suggested musical instruments for our countermelodies include flute, violin, oboe, cello and organ.
