Text Information:

This refrain from a longer hymn could well be understood as a black gospel reflection on several biblical passages: 2 Corinthians 5:7, 1 Samuel 7:12, and 1 Chronicles 17:16. All these texts bear witness to God’s faithfulness toward all who are engaged in the pilgrimage of faith.

Audio recording: Audio (MP3)
