Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Scored for Guitar, Piano, SATB Choir

This simple melody based on the tune EL CAMINO is set for unison choir with or without congregation, and a four-part setting for the middle stanza. The final stanza has a beautiful descant for Sopranos and Altos which provides a gentle halo over the melody. The accompaniment is for either guitar, or very simple piano (guitar-like). The message in the text is powerful, proposing that we see God when the poor ones are giving, when the thirsty share the cup, and when we reach out in love to the stranger.
