Fix Me from movie Joyful Noise

Has anyone heard if there is an arrangement available of this yet? Queen Latifah sings it in the movie, backed up by an SATB choir. I'd love to program it during Lent!

SATB a/c from Walton Music; another from Gentry Publications; Hal Leonard and G Schirmer have "Fix Me, Jesus, a Negro Spiritual" a/c.  I would hope that one of these arrangements could be close or adaptable.  We took our choir to see the movie and got a kick out the fitted choir robe!!!  And I felt as if I had burned 500 calories, just sitting there.  It was great entertainment, and wonderful to see spiritual matters and concerns addressed on the 'big screen'.

Thank you, Beverly. I will most likely transcribe it myself (with permission of course) since the arrangement from the film doesn't seem to be available.

It's also in several African American hymnals, in a very simple hymn style arrangement.  My chamber choir loves it and we perform it frequently.  Be aware that the term "Fix me" is dialect for "Fits me" as in "for my long white robe."
