Text Information:

This 20th-century Dutch hymn could well be understood as an expansion of the imagery of death and life in Romans 6:1–11, interpreted from a eucharistic perspective. Such short lines and exact rhymes are a challenge to maintain; the art of this text is a measure of its conviction.
