Listen to the 21st and final track in the movie, not written by Burwell, "Leaning On The Everlasting Arms" in "Videos." Written by Elisha A. Hoffman and Anthony J. Showalter; Performed by Iris DeMent:

What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
Leaning, leaning,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.

Heard a great hymn at the end of the movie, True Grit, called, "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms." Never heard the tune before, but immediately recognized the great voice of Iris Dement (I recommend her album, Infamous Angel).
This True Grit CD - identified as the "original soundtrack" - has 20 tracks, but fails to include the only song I want to hear. This is especially disappointing as, according to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leaning_on_the_Everlasting_Arms), the song Leaning on the Everalsting Arms "has been used in several movies, including...True Grit (2010) (of which it forms about a quarter of the score)."
This omission could be a matter of Carter Burwell's ego, including on the soundtrack only his own songs; or it may be that Iris Dement would not provide a release, being that the sound appears on her own Lifeline album.
It is a shame in either case, that the library does not own any version of this much-loved hymn written in 1887 - even though it has appeared in 5 other films, 3 TV series, 2 commercials, and been performed by at least 5 other artists, including Mahalia Jackson and Selah (see Wikipedia citation shown above).
