English. Text by Adam M. L. Tice.
Here is a catchy, lively, joyous tune! Verses 3 and 4 take an excursion into the relative minor with a slightly altered melody line. The piece then returns to the original major key. Very flexible in terms of when to use a soloist, the choir, or the assembly - in any combination. Appropriate for the washing of feet on Holy Thursday and when themes of mercy, justice, call, and social concern are highlighted.
The Cantor or Solo parts are optional.
