Evermore or ever more?

In response to an enquiry: TD-S's use of the word "evermore” at the close of the final verse is correct. Though this is sometimes written as two words, traditionally (from Middle English onwards), it’s written as a single word: a more emphatic version of “ever”, which is exactly right in this context. The word also holds the remnant suggestion of “always, at all times, constantly”, which is also appropriate here.
